The jury recognized the radical potental of our enactive art installation:

“The award winners display a radical […] approach.” “Although all submissions to the competition are thoughtful and well executed, not all of them push the boundaries and show us new ideas. This project is a prototype and a wonderfully creative attempt to think spatially about future workscapes. [T]he design is not about taste but about the subject being addressed. Will we, in 20 or 50 years, be working while leaning over, lying down or standing up?”

Jury members:

-Deyan Sudjic, director of the Design Museum in London

-Nora Fehlbaum is Co-CEO and Member of the Board of Vitra

-Alexis Georgacopoulos is director of ECAL- Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne

-Brendan Cormier, curator Victoria and Albert Museum London
