BORN AWARDS 2018: THE BEST OF THE REST 01 INTERIOR DESIGN Michael Anastassiades’ Flos Arrangements creates head-turning products that are almost jewellery-like. The British lighting firm’s pendant lamps are a modular system of geometric light elements that gracefully attach to and rest on each other, with multiple combinations to create delicate compositions of glowing chains. Runner-up: Ilia Potemine, Isp Lamp (France) 02 ARCHITECTURE DESIGN Cino Zucchi’s design of Italian coffee products company Lavazza’s new headquarters in Turin bagged the category win. His striking Nuvola complex regenerates a former industrial site with an artful blend of nature – at the heart of the site lay fountains, trees, green spaces, benches and a pedestrian link – and stunning, LEED Gold-certified sustainable design. Runner-up: Ramon Esteve, Bombas Gens (Spain) 03 SPORT DESIGN Category honours went to Alexandre Fauvet of renowned French skiwear brand Fusalp. Fusalp’s ’sport-chic’ philosophy marries performance and elegance to create ski-suits, jackets and shoes that look equally at home in the après chalet as on the slopes at Winter Olympic Games. Runner-up: Teckell, 90° Minuto (Italy) 03 04 02 05 04 LEISURE DESIGN It took a ban from the NBA for people to notice what American brothers Ryan and Adam Goldston had created. Their Athletic Propulsion Labs sneakers use forefoot compression springs to give wearers a boost. With supportive and comfortable TechLoom knit construction, APL’s distinctive products stormed the sports world. Runner-up: Clara Daguin, Aura Inside (France) 05 TECHNOLOGY DESIGN Frustrated with the wastefulness of the fashion industry, Spanish entrepreneur Javier Goyeneche launched Ecoalf. Made of recycled materials, including plastics salvaged from the seas, Ecoalf clothing, footwear and accessories are now worn by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Runner-ups: Hugo Mercier, Dreem (France) and Max Pontrelli, Lap Steel Guitar (Italy) SPECIAL PRIZES These were awarded to the Loewe Foundation, sculptor Nino Mustica, and Scott Painter’s US-based Fair app. Fair lets people flexibly hire pre-owned cars, via mobile, without long-term commitment or debt. A slick, all-digital, endto-end transactional platform using predictive analytical technology, Fair proves that clean, effective design is in fact extremely complex. 73
