Home Press Release Carpet Design Awards 2015 winners announced

Hannover, Germany—The winners of the Carpet Design Awards presented by Innovations@DOMOTEX 2015 have been announced. On Sunday, Jan. 18 prizes were awarded to the world’s best designer carpets in eight categories by an international jury of carpet and design experts at Domotex, held Jan. 17-20 here.

More than 250 designer pieces from 23 countries were submitted in the competition, with 25 carpets reaching the final round. The carpets were judged with regard to design and design concept, material, finish, texture and quality as well as sustainability and branding.

“This year the panel consisted of people with hugely different skill sets all of whom work in different countries,” said Michael Sodeau, head of the Carpet Design Awards jury. “This meant that everyone’s professional experience was quite different and sharing our opinions was very engaging and informative.
