Bolia Design Awards

À l’instar des saisons scandinaves, nous n’avons pas peur du changement. C’est pourquoi nous donnons quelque chose en retour au monde du design que nous aimons tant en invitant la nouvelle génération de designers à participer à nos Bolia Design Awards. Une belle tradition que nous perpétuons chaque année depuis 2007. À chaque édition, nous nous faisons une joie de récompenser les propositions les plus créatives et de donner aux gagnants l’opportunité de voir leurs designs devenir des séries qui se vendront dans le monde entier et viendront orner votre intérieur.

Nous avons hâte de célébrer une fois de plus les talents créatifs qui partagent la même passion pour le design scandinave que nous, et qui l’interprètent et le réinventent à leur manière, aussi belle qu’inattendue.

      Rendez-vous en 2020 !

    À l’occasion des Bolia Design Awards 2019, nous avons reçu plus de 500 propositions de design des quatre coins du monde. Des esprits créatifs venant du Canada, de Taïwan, d’Israël, de Russie, du Vietnam, des Émirats arabes unis, d’Allemagne, de Norvège et bien d’autres encore nous ont fait part de leur interprétation personnelle du nouveau design scandinave.

    Notre jury professionnel n’a pas eu la tâche facile pour départager les meilleurs designs, en se basant sur des critères tels que la créativité, le potentiel, la fonctionnalité et la durabilité.

    Marbled salts by Roxane Lahidji, France

    Marbled salts explores future manufacturing possibilities by reinventing salt as a sustainable material for design applications.

    The research focused on predicting a possible future where materials are no longer excavated but recycled composites infinitely renewable. The project uses salt’s self-binding properties to mould a set of small side tables and low stools resembling luxurious stones. The design was focused on rare or costly shapes, as such objects would generate a significant amount of material waste if produced from natural stone. Coal powder and natural pigments mimic the aesthetics of expensive natural stone such as marble.

    Marbled salts is made from 95% Sea Salt - one of the most available and cheap resources on the planet, and was developed with an intermediary lifetime in order to remain easily reusable and follow consumption fashions. Inspired from old marble faking techniques Marbled Salts draws a contradictory parallel between the flexible versatility of salt and the material language of heavy and solid rock.

    Moonlight by Fabio Pugliese, Italy

    Swipe, slide, scroll. A gesture is a way to face technology, in a time where relations between objects and users are becoming ephemeral.

    Moonlight affirms the importance of gestures in creating a different relationship between the user and the object. The intensity of the light is modulated by sliding the sphere on the structure. The pivotal stick, inserted into the light source and linked to an internal dimmer, will regulate the light.

    The materials chosen for the presentation underline the simplicity of the shapes and interaction but a possible variation is to use a wooden structure with a square section instead of the proposed tubular metal frame.

     

    13Rosas by Cenlitrosmetrocadrado, Spain

    13Rosas is a system of equipment for social areas. The design process explores the functional aspects and interactions in this context and offers a light, flexible and aesthetic solution.

    A piece of furniture aimed to meet, share and socialize with. With a Nordic aesthetic, it is based on subtle nuances of blues and greys that contrast with the intensity of orange. The global approach wants to be timeless both in form and in the colour palette in order to be subtly integrated into any open space.

    Wooden planes are used on these light structures in order to create seating and working surfaces. On the other hand, cushions made of textile and foam can be easily combined in order to compose the rest area according to the different needs.

    Moonlight by Fabio Pugliese, Italy

    This beautiful and innovative lamp, designed by Fabio Pugliese, is both the winner of this year's Customer Prize and runner-up in the main competition, proving its value and admiration from both professionals and customers.

    Combining form and function, Moonlight allows you to adjust the intensity of its light by moving the orb. An innovative design that emulates the Moon's orbit around us all.
