We have had the honor of receiving the Carpet of the Year award.
In its fifth edition, the Interior Awards highlighted how design increasingly drinks from artistic expression, blurring the fine line that separates both disciplines
The search for harmony is as important a principle in the arts as it is in design. In fact, many contemporary designers approach their work like a painter on canvas, and society grants more and more artistic value to the forms of expression of the interior designer or industrial designer, for example. With the intention of demonstrating how the borders between both disciplines have been blurring in the XNUMXst century, the Interior Awards, which held its fifth edition yesterday at the Westin Palace hotel in Madrid, have awarded personalities and brands that combine crafts, artistic creation, design and architecture in an innovative way and with attention to the environment, a fundamental concern of all the winners.
Judit Mascó acted as the presenter of the exclusive gala, in which she explored the ways in which art and design are related. A large number of designers, communicators and "socialites" attended the dinner, such as Pascua Ortega, Pepe Leal, Erico Navazo, Adriana Nicolau, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Quique Sarasola, Raquel Sánchez Silva, Roberto Brasero, Olga Brisa and Fiona Ferrer , in addition to the president of Grupo Planeta and Atresmedia, José Creuheras, and the president of Prisma Publicaciones, Laura Falcó Lara.
The jury, made up of, among others, personalities from the field of design, such as the decorator Pascua Ortega and the architects Juli Capella and Benedetta Tagliabue, awarded the twelve winners their ability to transform a space and provide it not only with beauty, but with personality and sensitivity.
Regarding the awards reserved for companies in the sector, the jury chose to highlight the work of centenary and global companies such as Villeroy & Boch, which won the Best Showroom of the Year, but also artisan initiatives such as Kaymanta, an Argentine manufacturer of artisan rugs founded by Claudio Cid, who received the award last night. "In this era of technological revolution, we appreciate pieces that break the mold and make our lives easier," said Mascó when awarding the Technological Innovation award to Jordi García, from Nofer, a leading sanitaryware manufacturing company. The Italian Smeg, specialist in household appliances; Discesur ceramics and Signify lighting were also awarded. "Every space is built on the possibilities offered by light," said the presenter when awarding recognition to Jordi Manrique, Signify's communication director. All the awarded companies have in common their passion for sustainability and the environment.
