Wonderful news…the winner of the Newcomer award in the 2010 German Design Prize is an old friend of ours. Elisa Strozyk won the award for her work “Wooden Textiles”, which impressed the jury for originality, as well as emotional and symbolic quality. You can find out more on the design council website (in German) or here on the ICSID website, where we found this quote from Elisa about her work: “I question everyday normality, re-interpret it, put what is familiar into a new context.”
You can see more of Elisa’s work on her website, or come by the Circus Hotel where she was responsible for the creation and installation of the photo-wallpaper and the lightboxes in Fabisch. Congratulations Elisa!
