Winners of The Great Indoors Awards 2009
The Great Indoors is a competition where the best Interior Design concepts are exposed to the public. TGI takes place every two years and it’s much more than prizes; it is a design fiesta where lectures and workshops are organized in an attempt to promote and highlight the importance of Interior Design. With 380 entries from more than 40 countries the Great Indoors Awards have managed to attract the crème de la crème of the Interior Design around the world.
The 2009 edition of the TGI took place in Maastricht, Netherlands. This year’s awards has been marked by the Global financial crisis and despite the fact that it is not possible to predict the side effects of the crisis in this area, it is quite evident that the Interior Design will be part of the domino effect. Due to this phenomenon the jury has decided to take under consideration the current circumstances at the time of the adjudication.
In the Design World there is a always a constant dialogue between the space and the products, the architecture and the objects, a non stop evolution where everything changes and transforms in order to face the new challenges and adapt to new situations. As part of this theory the members of the jury decided to name this edition as Changing ideals; a title that reflects the influence between ‘container and contained’ where the needs and the ideals are redefined based on the new circumstances.
The Great Indoors is an initiative by FRAME Magazine, Marres Centre for Contemporary Culture and NaiM/Bureau Europa, and is financially supported by the City of Maastricht and the Province of Limburg.
