Sure, you can get a list of the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2010 anywhere. But you want to see
the designs, not just read their names on a list! So, we've gathered
them for you. Focusing on the best interior design awards, here are 11
of the 22 winning furniture designs, plus the winner of the Wallpaper* Furniture
Designer of the Year winner in Part 1.
There is no order to these designs. They are all first place winners in Wallpaper*'s furniture design categories. But I will start off with the winner of the overall prize for furniture design....
1. Wallpaper* Furniture Designer of the Year 2010: Konstantin Grcic
From the announcement... "Konstantin Grcic is a man who tirelessly experiments, reinvents and
improves. Meticulous as an industrial designer by training, he applies
the same level of attention and detail to all that he turns his hand
to, from larger pieces of furniture to smaller accessories, leaving
them all with an unmistakable Grcic stamp."
We've shown several of Grcic's designs here at InventorSpot. His most recent design, the 360 Container, is a great stack of caster-bottomed drawers that swivel around to where you are from a vertical pole as they open.
