This year's Great Indoors Awards saw some home-grown creatives walk away with prizes for best public space and best office.
It was Nezu Aymo Architects i.c.w. SUPERFLEX which won in the Serve and Facilitate category for its Power Toilets, Heerhugowaard 2010. i29 Interior Architects took first place in the Concentrate and Collaborate section for Tribal DDB, Amstelveen 2011.
About Power Toilets the jury said: A nondescript grey box on a beach in Heerhugowaard contains public toilets modelled on those used by members of the United Nations Security Council in New York, as reconstructed from smuggled mobile-phone images. The project’s has a dual identity: a contemporary art installation that doubles as a functional toilet.
And on Tribal DDB their views were: For the open-plan office of a creative company in the Dutch municipality of Amstelveen, i29 opts for the exclusive use of grey felt. A traditional material with a long history and the perfect choice for this project, felt generates warmth, good acoustics and privacy.
Winners of the Show and Sell category were Australian designers March Studio, and hailing from Japan, Nezu Aymo Tatzu Nishi won the Relax and Consume prize.
The Great Indoors Award is an international, biennial, interior design award initiated and organized by: FRAME Magazine (Amsterdam), Marres, Centre for Contemporary Culture (Maastricht), and NAiM/Bureau Europa (Maastricht).
