It supports the business world in all aspects of design and is one of the world’s leading centers of expertise on design. Today, the foundation boasts 200 members, including designers, corporations, associations and institutions – all of them committed to the principle that design is more than just a sleek surface but a crucial factor for business and cultural success.
STATEMENT OF THE JURY
"The an&angel DECO series comprises various handblown glass dishes, which with their simple geometric design, metal colouring, and above all their sophisticated reflective effect suggest cultivated elegance. The dishes’ mirror coating is the result of prolonged efforts to coat glass with stainless steel.
And the efforts were well worth it. It is fascinating to see the surroundings mirrored by the curving of the dishes. A fascinating and attractive home accessory and the height of discerning living styles. Highly sophisticated."
