And now the most important award (in my humble opinion): “Designer of the year”. The nominees are:

Lievore Altherr Molina

“Founded in 1991, the Spanish design studio has led the creative direction of Italian company Arper since 1999 – for which it designs packaging, brochures, stands and furniture – and collaborated with big-name clients including Poltrona Frau, Thonet and Bernhardt. Recurring elements of its products, brand identities and packaging are pure lines and organic shapes, with streamlined silhouettes and smooth angles. This year’s highlights include lighting solutions for Foscarini and Vibia, a desk for Martex and the ‘Saya’ chair for Arper.”

Muller Van Severen

“Belgium-based practice Muller Van Severen has been turning heads since its inception in 2011. Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen’s ‘furniture project’ focuses on blending everyday pieces into new shapes and uses. Steel, leather and polyethylene are favourite materials, which the pair shape into fluid designs in bold colours. Their signature pieces include leather seats in the shape of deckchairs, multi-coloured shelves and geometric steel lighting fixtures, all of which are often combined with each other as furniture landscaping experiments.”

Neri & Hu

“Architects Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu founded Neri & Hu in 2004, and have since won plaudits for their interior and product design, as well as architecture. Last year, the pair opened the Design Commune in Shanghai, which houses design and fashion retailers, a design gallery, a restaurant and a loft apartment, as well as their retail venture, Design Republic, which aims to bring international design to the Chinese market. This year, they’ve also designed a furniture collection for De La Espada and Camper’s flagship store in Shanghai.”

Michael Anastassiades

“For years, Michael Anastassiades produced work in very limited quantities, until 2007, when the London-based Cypriot set up a company to increase the availability of his designs. This year he wowed Milan Salone-goers with his marble ‘Miracle Chips’ created for Wallpaper* Handmade. He also designed a lighting concept for Flos in which the hanging lights’ black electrical cords worked as a decorative element, and produced a furniture collection for Svenskt Tenn in playful homage to Josef Frank.”

Philippe Nigro

“This year, French-born, Milan-based designer Philippe Nigro was enlisted by Hermès to create a capsule collection of furniture pieces called Les Nécessaires d’Hermès, blending French luxury with Oriental sensibility. The designer’s first full collection, it is comprised of simple, versatile objects such as stackable side tables and decorative screens. Other recent work includes two designs for Baccarat: the retro-looking, modular hanging light ‘Clochette’; and ‘Céleste’, which is inspired by an Oriental lantern.”
