This sponsored post is brought to you by A’ Design Award and Competition. The A’ Design Award is an annual showcase for the world’s best design concepts, prototypes and finished products. Here’s a selection of five from the winners of the 2011-2012 competition. Above, a close-up of a Mu’trans vase.
Mu’trans Home Accessories by Mu’factory Cetti DavÃ¬/Dario Feo, a vase created to appear static but is actually elastic and mobile. Hand made of silicone Mu’trans vibrate and wave unexpectedly when touched.
1×3 Coffee Table by Petar Zaharinov, a piece of furniture inspired by interlocking burr puzzles. It consists of three wooden sticks and a 10mm thick tempered glass top. All the parts stay together without the need of glue and nails.
Cheung’s Residence Residence by Yu-Ngok Lo, a new construction on an existing lot built with a limited budget.
Gorge Coffee Table by Ramei Keum, reminiscent of a natural gorge with steep walls and a narrow valley below. The V shape plays a structural role supporting the top of the table, but also serves to hold books and magazines.
Tip Led Interior Design Light by Tapio Anttila, with a tip in the center that resembles a drop hitting a surface just before it spreads out. Made of thin acrylic sheet with an LED light source.
