The Jury Winners

1st: Wireframe spaces by mutazalsidawi – congrats!

Their target was ‘to find a very simple and inexpensive system to change the space of the restaurant.’ So they came up with a system of lines (rubber strings or cables) that allowed for endless variations of spaces, from very small and cozy to big open spaces, in very short time.



2nd: Chameleon by zaarchitects – kudos!

Their concept was an interior adapting to changing environment in the same way as a chameleon changes its color depending on its mood. Systems subject to change are spatial system (volumes, lines, objects), lighting (natural light, artificial light, shadows), atmosphere (fire, water, scents, plants), materials (color, texture, patterns), sounds (music, other sounds), virtual system (digital menu, video, automatic control)


3rd: 360-degree by Mathias – great job!

Mathias idea contained changeable main elements. The first element is a rotating floor platform with a 360-degree range of movement which enables to change the position of the furniture located on its surface in just a few minutes. The second one is a group of movable screens made of opaque glazed tubes with integrated LED lights. Finally, the third changeable design element is a ceiling light which shade collapses and expands to allow for more or less light to be diffused.
