Description
The focus of the Interieur Awards is on our living environment. Our habitat takes central place in this year’s competition.
Have you recently designed a new object that might be relevant to the living environment? We are looking for objects which help us improve daily life. Objects which influence our lifestyle habits and might change our way of life for the better.
We are keen to explore the impact of new materials and technologies on such objects, and how they can have a transforming influence. Also how new potential can be achieved with traditional materials.
Every object that fits into a living environment is allowed in the competition, whether it is aimed at general use or developed with a particular niche market in mind.
