We've been itching to reveal the 6 finalists our judges have chosen for the Emerging Talent Award 2016. The judges narrowed down hundreds of impressive entries to bring you these.
Now, it's all down to you. You decide which design we make and put on our site. This could potentially launch the career of one of these new designers, so choose wisely.
Read on to find out a bit more about each design, and then vote for your favourite.
Cairn by KIMXGENSAPA Design Studio
“This reminds me of Chinese dim sum trays. It’s super practical, and really strong. Our customers will love the colour graduation, and I’d love to see it in graded grey” - Ruth Wassermann
Drag and Drop by Saverio Incombenti
“What caught our attention most in this project is the use of textile. We also like that with very little design intervention it becomes a very useful piece of furniture for compact living.” - Cate & Nelson
D Stressed Mirror by James Wallace
Shrewsbury, Great Britain
“Mirrors can open up a space and this one has a distressed, urban feel to it, which I like. It’s a real statement piece.” - Ning Li
Rolling with the Light by Paul Alleyrat
"I love the interplay between the product and the space. As a lighting system it is infinitely flexible – it can be suspended conventionally, of course, but it can also be placed on the floor to create micro-environments. Ideal for the modern and compact home." - Fiona Burrage
Scrittoio by Sedicigradi
“This piece fits the brief really well and has a great function for people who are limited for space. In both positions it looks like a fully completed item.” - Ruth Wassermann
Yaunty by Claus Niephaus
“We appreciate the straight-forward design of this chair. The design language makes the product very versatile and suitable for different environments.” - Cate & Nelson
