“Tile Award 2012” NEWCOMER COMPETITION – the award winners have been selected

Competition for architects and interior designers under the age of 35

Hamburg, 29th of June 2012 – For the second time already, the “Tile Award” initiated by AIT and Agrob Buchtal invited young architects and interior designers under the age of 35 from all over Europe to give new and unprecedented thoughts to the use of tiles in the interior – and quite intentionally beyond the already described, traditional aesthetic.

More than 60 offices followed this invitation and ten of them made it into the second round – some of them as wildcard holders, some of them qualified in the first competition round. During a 5-day workshop at the Amalfi coast the participants had to further develop the first approaches into three-dimensional designs. The participants came from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and China.

A renowned jury decided on workshop participants and award winners. The jury awarded three first prizes as well as one special prize in the three categories of “Hotel / Gastronomy”, “Wellness / Spa” and “Health / Care”. These designs are now constructed and professionally photographed. The exhibition of all concepts will be presented in the context of the trade fair Bau 2013 in Munich.

The jury included the following renowned members:
Petra Wollenberg, lwa leyk wollenberg architekten, DE-Berlin
Willem Bruijn, Partner bei Baumschlager Eberle, DE-Lochau
Raimund Docmac, studiodocmac, DE-Stuttgart
