Muuto Talent Award

For the third year, Muuto hosted the annual design competition for Nordic design students. This year’s Muuto Talent Award has received more than 400 contributions by design students. This year’s winner is David Geckeler and his Nerd Chair.

David Geckeler: “It’s an honor and achievement for a young designer like me to win a design award like this. The Nerd chair is my attempt to develop a current and personal attitude towards Danish design and Muuto as a leading contemporary design company seems to be a perfect match for the chair’s design”

David created his Nerd chair while studying at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen as part of a project exploring Danish ways of designing objects. The intuitive yet innovative design and some interesting Scandinavian references were among the jury’s primary reasons for picking Nerd.

 

In the fall of 2011, students of more than 20 design schools in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland were invited to participate in Muuto’s annual design contest Muuto Talent Award. Hundreds of students decided to submit their best designs within furniture, lighting and accessories.

2nd prize: Caroline Olsson, Akershus University, Norway - Bambi Table

3rd prize: Marte Straalberg, Bergen National Academy of the Arts, Norway - Sprinkle Lamp
