The SIT Furniture Design Award 2021 is now open, receiving submissions from furniture designers, interior designers, industrial designers, manufacturers, brands and design studios globally. 

SIT Furniture Design Award was created to celebrate and recognize the remarkable work of furniture designers, interior designers. Creativity, innovative vision, and accessibility in the furniture design community deserve to be applauded and shared widely, across the world.

“SIT Furniture Design Award fosters new opportunities between Furniture Designers and Interior Designers.said Astrid Hébert, Co-founder and Program Director; adding that “The program is also open to students; it’s a unique opportunity to showcase the ingenuity of a new generation of Designers.”

The winner of the “Innovation of the Year” will receive a grant of US$3000 to create a prototype or to start production. Each year, a different topic will be chosen, focusing on projects which highlight innovation, closely examine today’s challenges, and find ways to overcome them.

“Looking at challenges and seeking ways to overcome them are central to furniture design. For this reason, the SIT Furniture Design Award has created an Innovation Center focusing on projects which highlight invention.” said Hossein Farmani, co-founder.  

This year, the Innovation Center focuses on smart furniture, which covers two broad subcategories: technology integration and being smart/adaptable. 

Entries to the program will be anonymously judged by an influential jury panel of experienced academics and established design industry professionals whose mandate is to recognize and award the absolute best designers. Each jury member brings a wealth of knowledge, with their combined insight and votes; the final winners will be selected.

The SIT Furniture Design Award will close on February 15th, 2022, and receive a 15% discount on the submission fees by applying before the 31st of July 2021!
