It’s great to have a varied set of judges view the products, which in our view, grounds the award and makes it relevant both from a cultural and a commercial perspective.

Judges

Designers present their design in person, giving the judging panel the opportunity to examine it closely,
and find out first hand from the mind behind the piece, how it demonstrates excellence
in the design of furnishings for volume production.
