Hannover—The finalists in the Carpet Design Awards 2015 presented by Innovations@DOMOTEX have been announced. More than 250 designer pieces from 23 countries were submitted for the coveted award, and 25 have made it through to the finals. The finalists will be showcased at the upcoming DOMOTEX show to be held Jan. 17-20. The winner from each category will be formally announced Sunday, Jan. 18 at 4.30 p.m. in Hall 17.

Under the chairmanship of the renowned British designer Michael Sodeau, the international jury has selected carpets in each of eight categories which promise to deliver an exciting mix of visionary design and traditional craft skills. The judges have assessed the entries for design and design concept, materials, execution, texture and quality as well as sustainability and branding.

“We have seen many examples of outstanding design work—including the best that the market currently has to offer. It’s all about the creative awareness that the designer brings to the carpet-making process. His years of experience in making products or carpets by hand and his extensive knowledge of these matters feed into the production process, and the result is a high-value, high-quality artifact”, says Sodeau.
