Young talent and promising designers find their way to the Biennale through the Interieur Awards, allowing them to present their ideas to a large and professional audience.
The winning projects for this year are again a fine sample of what is going on in design at the moment, presenting a very diverse range of themes, materials and functionalities.
The jury has consisted of leading captains of industry, designers and design critics for many years. A mix of people who, in one way or another, play an important role in the contemporary design and architectural landscape. The jury this year consisted of Patrizia Moroso (IT), designers Sebastian Herkner (DE), Alain Gilles (BE) and Dimitri Bähler (CH), journalist Tom Morris (UK), and architects Glenn Sestig (BE) and Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture (USA).
