Prototype Jury Selected Winner

Congratulations to Cristian Arostegui G. of Arostegui Studio for his jury-selected winning design as part of the Prototype design competition presented by Volvo Canada. After careful deliberation our esteemed jury of Anne Pearson, Judson Beaumont and Nancy and Niels Bendtsen selected the Sofi Bench as the winner. The Sofi Bench is constructed of Ductal ultra high performance concrete and the design evolved from the conceptualization of an animal's anatomy.

Prototype People's Choice Winner

Congratulations to Brett Riekert for winning the People's Choice award in the Prototype design competition presented by Volvo Canada at IDSwest 2015. The winning design of the Katamay Chair was inspired by Danish mid-century modern furniture and combines walnut, steel and leather to create a simple and sophisticated design. Thank you to all of the participants of the Prototype design competition; click here to see the list of finalists.

Caesarstone Swings #SwingWest

We were thrilled to welcome Caesarstone to IDSwest once again and as always their exhibit was a highlight of the fair. In particular the design of the Swings installation by Philippe Malouin for Caesarstone was a favorite both at the show and online. To see a selection of the images shared on social media visit #SwingWest. To learn more about the new collection by Caesarstone click here.
