DESIGNERS OF THE FUTURE AWARD WINNER
I am incredibly honoured to share with you that I am a 2013 recipient of the "W Hotels Designers of the Future Award", which grants three designers with a special commission to be presented onsite at Design Miami/ Basel. Design Miami/ Basel, coinciding with Art Basel, will take place June 11 - 16 in the new Hall 1.1 Süd, Messe Basel—right next to Art Unlimited.
I am happy to welcome you to come see my commission and while you are there I highly recommend visiting the booth of my gallerist Caroline Van Hoek.
The award winners are selected by an international jury of design professionals. This year's jury was composed of Tony Chambers of Wallpaper Magazine, Aric Chen of M+ Museum Hong Kong, Alexis Georgacopoulos of ECAL Lausanne, curator and author Benjamin Loyauté, Jan Boelen of Design Academy Eindhoven and Z33, Mike Tiedy of Starwood Hotels and Marianne Goebl of Design Miami. I am sharing this award with London-based designer Bethan Laura Wood and Seoul-based Seung-Yong Song. All three of us join an impressive list Designers of the Future award winners, such as Front, rAndom international, Asif Khan, mischer'traxler and Markus Kayser, among others.
