The winning projects of the 11th edition of the International Design Contest by Andreu World

Earlier this week, on the opening day of Feria Habitat Valencia, the Spanish furniture manufacturer Andreu World has unveiled the winning projects of this year’s, 11th edition of the International Design Contest organised by the company.

 

The first prize was awarded (ex aequo) to the German designer Edward Kaiser for his ‘Twin Chair’, and to Barcelona-based Sebastien Cordoleani for the ‘Capas’ chair design while the Greek designer Christina Perdikaki was awarded an honorable mention for her ‘intelligently constructed’ foldable table. The first prize was accompanied by 3000 euros.

‘With regard to the “Capas” project, the jury has highlighted the realistic expression of a chair, appreciating the contrast between its simple, tectonic and compact structure, which is gently complemented with a folded surface that acts as a backrest and a seat.’

‘Regarding the “Twin Chair” project, the jury has appreciated the conceptual idea behind the piece, the design of which combines a dual function: it acts as chair and as a table, which transforms it into an icon and an object capable of creating surprise. It is a radical design and a piece that brings together complexity and aesthetics. ‘

Honorable Mention: table by Christina Perdikaki

‘The jury has pointed out the intelligent construction of this table and has highlighted its honesty, clarity and austere design. Its “Low tech” character converts it into a functional, easy-to-produce design. The jury recommended further study and development in order to optimize and define the details, proportions and its materialization.’
