A Wallpaper* Smart Space Award is a stamp of approval for functional yet beautiful design from our sister publication Wallpaper*, which is recognized as a global design authority. Nominations are invited by designers and businesses large and small, and the awards are judged by a panel of Wallpaper* editors, designers and industry experts based on quality, impact and of user experience. This year Wallpaper* has added a new award celebrating the smartest use of retail space.
All winners will be featured in a special feature in the print edition of Wallpaper* and will receive extensive coverage on the publication’s digital platforms and on social media. This year’s judges will include the design teams behind some of last year’s winners: Neri & Hu, who were awarded in 2021 for their ‘Everyday’ lamps for Stellar Works, and Kim Colin and Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility , who were recognized last year for their ‘OE1’ Workspace Collection for Herman Miller (on that note, see our pick of the best Herman Miller chairs).
Last year, the inaugural Wallpaper* Smart Space Awards showcased everything from e-bikes and air purifiers to office furniture and speakers. These were judged by architect Tosin Oshinowo, designer and artist Yuri Suzuki, Harrods retail manager Veronica Forin, Wallpaper* editor Sarah Douglas and transport and safety editor. Wallpaper* Technology Jonathan Bell.
