On Saturday 29 October during Dutch Design Week the Dutch Design Awards were presented. The winner in the Product category, FLAX Chair by Christien Meindertsma, impressed the international jury on all fronts, and won the Future Award: the big prize for the most promising design for the future.
Jury report: 'The FLAX Chair is of exceptionally high quality, and epitomises the work of Christien Meindertsma. From an inspiring conceptual design to thorough material research, the project is sublime in every detail. The partnership with Label Breed and Enkev turned out to be an excellent choice; together, they developed an almost waste-free production process. The result is a design that marries sustainability and relevance with an elegant aesthetic.'
