gold at the german design awards 2019 for mondriaanhuis
Three of our projects are awarded at the German Design Awards 2019. The multimedia installation we designed for the renewed Mondriaanhuis even won Gold! Nils van Keulen was at the awards ceremony Friday 8th to receive the Golden award on stage.
The German Design Awards, launched in 2012 by the German Design Council, identifies and presents unique design trends: a competition that advances the design-oriented scene. Every year, high-calibre entries in the fields of product and communication design are honoured, each of which blazes new trails in the international design landscape. The highly esteemed, international jury guarantees this.
The jury stated about the Mondriaanhuis: 'The daring concept of 'replacing' missing original works with a complex media installation was implemented in an impressively intriguing fashion. The result is an inebriatingly visual experience that brings Mondrian’s life and work into the present in a contemporary fashion. A successful mix of digital and analog elements that’s opulent but by no means brash, and that’s informative but without overwhelming the visitor; plus it offers an appealing interior decor that promotes genuine enjoyment and relaxation. An altogether successful and innovative approach to art installations.'
Tirpitz was recognized as winner in the category Fair and Exhibition. The jury said: 'The exhibitions take visitors on a spectacular journey through the tumultuous history of the country, and the visual power of the exceedingly vivid scenes creates lasting impressions.'
And last but not least: the outpatient's clinic COACH for overweight adcolescent and children at the Maastricht UMC+ received a special mention. 'The colourful and kids-friendly space that has been created here takes visitors on an exciting journey of discovery and enables them to learn a lot about nutrition and exercise in a playful, unpressured way. An inspired educational solution.', according to the judges.
