Stylepark Selected Award 2021
Since 2018, Stylepark has presented the Stylepark Selected Award to outstanding new products at the respective trade fairs in the design and architecture sector. This year, the Stylepark Selected Award will be awarded independently of the trade fairs. In addition to typological and design diversity, the selection reflects innovative approaches that integrate themes such as sustainable production, new technologies or products for hygiene in public spaces. The award offers an overview of current design developments and serves as a guide for architects, designers, journalists and design lovers.
Jury statement: "Mixu" offers a system that includes a series of material components that allow almost limitless design possibilities. In addition, the upholstery of the backrest and the seat, as well as the polyurethane foam filling, are attached without the use of glue or staples.
Jury statement: The outdoor furniture collection "Borea" evokes the glamour of past air travel. In addition, the chairs, side tables, dining tables, two-seater as well as three-seater sofas and armchairs are made of aluminum with a construction principle that allows sustainable separation of the individual components.
Jury statement: With "Nate" from Brunner, nature and technology come together in an innovative way. The wooden furniture collection of chairs, tables, benches, bar stools and stools combines clever design in the form of a frame made of 100 percent recycled plastic with sustainable production.
Jury statement: With four LED luminaire types in different sizes, heights, optics and luminous intensities, the "Pointbreak" outdoor luminaire collection from Flos enables aesthetic lighting solutions for ceilings, walls and floors. In addition, there is a glare-free lighting, whose soft glow was modeled on a candle.
Jury statement: As a natural further development of the successful normcore collection, "pony" picks up on its formal language and yet shows its own character. The fabrics for the seat of "pony" are made from recycled plastic waste - in combination with the high level of in-house production and the focus on wood as a natural material, the design by RelvãoKellermann is conceived as sustainable in its entirety.
Jury statement: The chair "Jazz" is based on a rhythmic basic order, which analogously to the improvisation in the eponymous musical style forms the framework for a free language of form. With it, the Berlin design label Loehr makes a new and fresh contribution to the typology of the dining room chair.
Jury statement: A light ribbon in the truest sense of the word: "Elastica" by Martinelli Luce consists of an elastic fabric with a dimmable LED strip. In combination with a cylindrical base and a ceiling mount, the luminaire can be stretched in any conceivable way in the room.
Jury statement: With a diameter of 32 centimetres each and in two sizes, the round, column-shaped "imi" side tables are thus not only very practical, but also contribute to a creative atmosphere in the room with numerous possible colour variations of their ceramic elements.
Jury statement: An armchair like a hammock: "Jack" by Rolf Benz consists of a black steel frame, a leather shell and a matching stool. The armchair presents itself as a comfortable all-rounder and looks like a homage to the "Flag Halyard Armchair" by Hans J. Wegner.
Jury statement: "Reflex² Floor" by serien.lighting distributes the light in the room via a filigree aluminum frame structure with the help of integrated LED boards. The ceiling floodlight convinces with its fine lines, which give it an almost immaterial appearance.
Villeroy & Boch
Jury statement: With a maximum of 4.5 litres per flush, "TwistFlush" saves water as a resource. Thanks to the almost complete surface flush, water splashes and aerosols can also be avoided. With "TwistFlush", Villeroy & Boch offers a future-oriented sanitary technology that is hygienic, sustainable and also low-noise.
Design: Torben Madsen
Jury statement: Vola presents "RS11", an elegant design for touch-free dispensers of soap and hand sanitising gel that can be harmoniously integrated into any interior design.
