Frame Awards 2020
List of Nominees

About the Frame Awards

The Frame Awards is the first and only global interior-design awards with a truly holistic approach. The Awards identify and honour the world’s best interior projects, but also the people behind them. The work is judged by all industry stakeholders: interior designers, architects, retail brands, hospitality providers, cultural institutions, and educators. In total 36 awards are divided under Spatial, Executional, and Societal Awards covering the entire spectrum of interiors, while the Honorary Awards celebrate the people behind them. This time, there were over 1,076 submissions from countries all over the world, and from those submissions, five finalists for each award were nominated. The final judging will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in February 2020, and representatives for each nominee will give presentations in front of the judges. The award winners will be honored at a grand ceremony where designers from all over the world will be gathered, and also be introduced in Frame's magazine and on its website.

Affinity in Autonomy:
Exhibition at Milan Design Week 2019

Nominated for Exhibition of the Year and Best Use of Digital Technology in Frame Awards 2020.

An experiential exhibit that was shown at Milan Design Week 2019. Based on the theme of "Affinity in Autonomy” we exhibited our vision of a new relationship with robotics. Composed of 5 interactions, visitors can experience step by step of the awakening and the growth of the relation between robotics and human. The relationship is also expressed in the gradual increase in color through the journey. The interactions feel organic, revealing no hint of the highly advanced technologies behind them.
