Carpet manufacturers honoured at Domotex Hannover

The jury has deliberated and reached a decision. 11 manufacturers have now received an award for their excellent design work. A total of 11 products were honoured on Sunday, 12 January, in a ceremony marking the start of DOMOTEX HANNOVER.

An additional award – for the carpet most favoured by the public – will be presented at the end of the show.

The presentation of the internationally acclaimed Carpet Design Awards took place for the ninth time at the world fair for carpets and floor coverings in Hannover. The Carpet Design Awards are dedicated to handmade carpets of remarkable quality and design.

A panel of experts judged outstanding products in a range of categories, including best studio artist designs and modern carpets, as well as everything ranging from traditional to innovative. This year’s Carpet Design Awards also focussed in particular on young talent.

A total of 329 entries from designers from across the world entered the competition for the highly esteemed awards. 33 carpets reached the final round. All these entries will be on show on a special display area during DOMOTEX.

The visiting public will see an impressive array of excellent carpet designs. After careful deliberation, the panel of judges was most impressed by 11 designs displaying particular excellence in terms of design, colours and materials. Year after year, the Carpet Design Awards set standards in design trends and ideas.

“The Carpet Design Awards provides a snapshot of the best and most innovative carpets being made today. The experience of the jury members ranges from interiors and product design, through to artists to rug retailers, however it is interesting for me to note that they always find themselves excited and inspired by the constant inventiveness of the best rug designers”, Ben Evans, executive editor of Cover magazine.

The members of the expert jury are, however, not alone in appraising the entries. Trade visitors also have a say in who wins a Carpet Design Award and can pick their own favourite among the finalists. The public will select their best-liked carpet from the 33 finalists, and the winner will receive the award on the final day of the show.

The emphasis on upcoming, next-generation talent is another new feature involving the introduction of two new categories. The AfghanMade initiative called for young designers (aged below 25) and design students to create and submit their own original work. Six designs were then handcrafted in Afghanistan and will be on view at DOMOTEX. 

In the design student category the contestants Sheefalika Misra from India, Evrim Terkesli from Turkey and Aoi Yoshizawa from Japan reached the final round. The winner is Sheefalika Misra. The finalists in the young designer category were Isobel Morris and Allistair Covell, both from the United Kingdom, and Sanja Peric from Serbia. The winner of this category is Allistair Covell.
