End of January I was invited by Bemz to participate as part of the German national jury for the Bemz Design Award 2014. I was very honored and happy to be sitting next to an editor of Elle Decoration Germany and of the online interiors community 'So Leb Ich' and look through more than 80 design submissions by young talented textile designers from across the country. And now it's your turn to cast your vote HERE for:
1. Marlen Mästele from the Reutlingen University
2. Caroline Bermes from the Trier University of Applied Sciences
3. Barbara Regus from the Hof University of Applied Sciences
The task was pretty difficult: We had to look through more than 1.200 slides of presentations, read the student's inspirations, look at the designs, make shortlists and discuss it. Eventually we managed to break it down to three German finalists that are very different from each other which I love in particular. Only one of the German finalists will go through to the big international final with design submissions from Sweden, France and the UK.
It is up to you now to vote for your favorites until February 28th, 2014. You can vote HERE - not only will you help a creative young textile designer to win the Bemz Design Award, but you will also qualify to win a one-of-a-kind designer bed make-over by Bemz worth 880 €.
Join in and cast your vote - I count on you my design-savvy readers!
