Laureates 2014 / 2013 / 2012 / 2011

Willy
1st Place 2012

Willy is a simple product recognizable at first glance. That in itself is positive, but what gave the jury a pleasant surprise was the way in which these bookshelves can be used. The accompanying film showed this very well. You see that the use of a product and practical study of this is crucially important for gaining new insights. This product makes maximum use of recycled carpet.

Kameleon
Shared 2nd Place 2012

Kameleon and Leaves both took second place. Both designs again make maximum use of carpet. Kameleon goes further by sorting recycled material to allow different colour combinations. Just like a real chameleon, it can be adapted to fit into every interior or office.

Leaves
Shared 2nd Place 2012

Kameleon and Leaves both took second place. Both designs again make maximum use of carpet. Leaves is based on the simple but brilliant idea of merely adding a bent piece of steel to change a strip of carpet into a book/magazine holder.

Wrapped carpet
3rd Place 2013

The tabouret that answers to the name Wrapped Carpet charmed many jury members. It is a beautiful and elegant object produced by rolling up strips of carpet. We can again see that carpet is an interesting material which lends itself to far more than just floor covering.
