We received many entries in response to our call for "furniture and lighting products or systems for private, public, commercial or industrial use." The jury evaluated each entry by asking a series of key questions: What is the object? How good is it at being that object? Does it further design? How good is the presentation?
Paul Cocksedge, Founder, Paul Cocksedge Studio led the Furniture and Lighting jury as Captain. He was joined by Claire Thomas, Campaigner, Design for 99, David Harvey, Wine Importer, Raeburn Fine Wines, and Luke Pearson, Founding Partner, PearsonLloyd.
Overall, the jury found little difference between the level of student and professional entries. "In fact, if there were to be a unanimous overall winner, it would have been the student entry which shouted quality: a piece of furniture to live on and with," stated the jury. Though they consider the professional winner to be "most capable of positively impacting its target market."
Without further ado, say hello to the Winners, Runners-Up and Notables for the 2015 Core77 Design Awards in the Furniture & Lighting category.
