“Everyone who impressed us was innovative and joined our playground for creative minds. Each proposal expresses the passion for design and brings a new international breath to our Scandinavian tradition. We are convinced that this creates something new.Bolia thanked him at the closing of the Bolia Design Awards 2022. Since January, the company has received entries from all over the world with sustainability, environmental concern and Scandinavian inspiration as the watchwords. A choice which explains the attribution of these three prizes: the Jury Prize, the Circularity Prize and the Public Prize
Ségolène Pla-Busiris, Jury Prize for her complementarity
With the mineral world as a source of inspiration, his Fragment side table is illustrated by the complementarity of its top and its support, which can be nested. In the image of the mineral world, Ségolène Pla-Busiris has designed a monolithic table, which she wishes to be timeless by its design and the traditional techniques used.
The Fischer & Mordrelle duo, prize for circularity
Everything here evokes circularity, from the curved shape of the Moon stool to its name recalling the Moon and its roundness, including of course the recycling of materials thanks to the French company FabBrick, specialized in the sorting of textile waste. Their recycling allowed the creation of this stool, an ethical process that Bolia wanted to highlight.
Sara Ullvetter Norman, People’s Choice Award for her environmental approach
The environmental concern being a more than ever topical subject, it is quite naturally that the public made the choice of the Swedish designer Sara Ullvetter Norman. Indeed, its contemporary Dune chair manages to reconcile two materials that are perfect for the environment with oak and hemp, the latter known for its low water consumption and positive impact on the soil.
