Nu Spin Easy Chair from Profim

Designer : Paul Brooks


Nu Spin chairs are a great solution for office spaces or hotel foyers looking for compact and original designs. It’s ideal for both formal areas and those designated for comfort and relaxation. The shell-like, comfortable form conforms nicely to the user’s shape. The chair has a compact form, which is an important feature in areas with limited space. In addition, chairs can be equipped with an auto-return function, making them ideal in rest zones that need to be kept neat and orderly.


Jury statement

The compact form of this armchair is perfect for rooms with limited space. At the same time, its clear lines give it a very elegant look, which is further enhanced by the exciting contrast between leather and fabric.

Crest Sofa by Materia

Designer : Mattias Stenberg


Crest assures a fine balance between openness and seclusion. Developed to work in public environments, it offers protection from prying eyes and encourages conversation and interaction as well. The back panel is a little higher than the back cushions to achieve this effect. In manner in which the different inner and outer covers are upholstered augments the feeling that one is sitting in the sofa and not on it.

Jury statement

At first glance the seat appears to be closed and bulky; on closer inspection, details such as the narrow border around the shell, the two-tone colour scheme and the slender feet create quite the opposite impression.

Mood by Randers+Radius

Designer : Hans Thyge

The Mood Tube chair helps you to create the right atmosphere and the right environment for your surroundings. The Mood collection is based on an animated design and fine details, which together help to make Mood unique. The beautifully shaped eco-friendly seat shell plays on subtle references to the human body. The chair has a feminine and light expression and built-in ergonomics that ooze comfort when sitting. The dotted surface adds tactility and gives a fashionable and textile feel.

Jury statement

The special texture of the seat surface gives the fabric a particular feel to the touch, assuring a special sitting experience.

Soft Top by Skandiform

Designer : Brad Ascalon

The Soft Top is made with public spaces in mind, and meets all requirements such as affordability, flexibility, quality and sturdiness. But what’s more, the design has a familiar touch that makes everyone feel right at home, even if they’re just visiting. A familiar shape with a new touch and different variations – and as the name implies, the design is topped off with a surprisingly soft touch.

Jury statement

The slender frame structure lends the stool an air of lightness, and of timelessly modern elegance. The soft upholstery gives it a friendly, comfortable and inviting look. A nice combination.
