Each and every day we interact with furniture and lighting extensively, often taking for granted the careful detail and precision that go into designing these products. Most of our days are spent in a piece of furniture, while most of our nights are illuminated by lighting fixtures—yet we rarely consider how crucial a role these designs play in our lives. Comfort, beauty, creativity and subtlety are the foundations for inspiring furniture and lighting design. Appropriately, all are considered for our Furniture & Lighting category, in which we ask for, "furniture and lighting products or systems for private, public, commercial or industrial use".
Our Jury Captain for the Furniture & Lighting category this year was Luca Nichetto, Founder of Nichetto Studio. Joining him on the Jury Team was Constance Guisset, Founder of Constance Guisset Studio, Hanna Nova Beatrice, Editor in Chief of Residence Magazine, and Shu Wei, Founder of ZaoZuo.
"The feasibility, the innovation and the functionality," are the three criteria Jury Captain Luca Nichetto considered when evaluating the submitted projects. "These connect for us what is good design in the lighting and furniture industry, and is something I am looking for when designing my own projects."
Core77 would like to express our deepest gratitude to the entire Furniture & Lighting Jury Team for recognizing the following projects:
