Dimitri Bähler (CH) winner of Grand Prize Interieur Awards
Volumes, Patterns, Textures and Colors © Dimitri Bähler
The jury unanimously chose the design ‘Volumes, Patterns, Textures and Colors’ by Swiss designer Dimitri Bähler (1988). The jury honoured his strong presentation that focused on in-depth research into materiality and tactility. Bähler surprised the jury with a subtle interaction between pared-down ceramic objects and lively patterns, a clever colour palette and innovative coatings.
“The result of my research is a collection of objects that plays with different variations of volumes, patterns, textures and colors, a kind of dictionary. Always close to an essential abstraction, these shapes can be used as pedestals, fruits bowls, vase, pencils / fruits holders,... Together, they create a dialogue between functionality and non-functionality, minimalism and decoration, questioning the concept of usefulness in our homes.” Dimitri Bähler
