Green Furniture Award, the design competition for Outstanding Sustainable Design, has opened the registration for 2015. The Competition has been created to find and highlight the best ecological design furniture ideas and have them produced.
Eligible for submission are all designs of sustainable products, which are not in production.
The 2015 Green Furniture Award competition offers three main prizes for the best designs and a total prize fund is 10,500 Euro.
Outstanding Sustainable Design, as the Competition organizers define it, incorporates aspects as the choice and sourcing of material, production methods, efficient use of materials, ways of disassembling and recycling, social responsibility, etc. Outstanding Sustainable Design is also meaning a piece of furniture to keep and treasure – with a story to tell, that ages in a nice way, that can last beyond current trends, and have the potential of becoming a classic.
The Green Furniture Award 2016 consists of the following prizes:
- A General First Prize of 3,500 Euro
- A Cappellini Prize of 3,500 Euro
- A Green Furniture Sweden Prize of 3,500 Euro
Jury includes authorities in sustainable design and the furniture industry.
The award ceremony is held at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in the beginning of February each year. In 2016 the organizers plan to present the finalists both at Stockholm Furniture Fair and at the Milano Design Week in cooperation with Cappellini, just like in 2014.
The Green Furniture Award competition is initiated by Johan Berhin in 2008.
