PRIZE CUBES 2022 by STUDIO NEWTAB-22
Designers Hyein Choi and Jihee Moon are particularly drawn to natural and overlooked materials which they seek to bring to modern life through innovative design.
The WIN WIN Award Prize Cubes has the basic shape of a cube, but each year it is made of a different sustainable material. One year it might be seaweed, the next volcanic ash, the year after that, recycled ocean plastic – and so on, until one day, sustainability is so ingrained in our collective behaviour that there is no need for an award. The prize cubes are created in close partnership with our visionary branding agency HAPPY f&b.
“For us, this partnership truly has been a WIN WIN. On the one hand, we contribute to drawing attention to and focusing on sustainability issues, and on the other hand, we gain increased knowledge through our membership.”
- Eva Halvarsson, Chief Executive Director at Andra AP-fonden
