CELEBRATNG GREAT DESIGN - JUDGING PANEL

​Haworth has assembled an esteemed judging panel to select the winning entry. We are delighted to have Patricia, Nicolai and David’s unique perspectives in furniture design and the Asia-Pacific marketplace to select the next design icon for the Haworth Collection.

​David Barrass

​Patricia Urquiola

​Nicolai Czumaj-Bront

NICOLAI CZUMAJ-BRONT

‘I want to bring an idea down to its essence without sacrificing what makes it desirable. With this in mind, I try to create solutions that are both simple and exciting.’

 

Nicolai believes that design should be about passion and love for life, to find new ways to create beauty, tell stories, to care, to inspire, to challenge ideas, and to solve problems. Design should not be dictated by trends, nor should it remain in a particular style of field. Nicolai is currently leading the design team in Haworth Europe.

STUDIO URQUIOLA 

Her work is widely known to be playful and poetic, yet pragmatic and functional, a creative combination that is the magic behind her work. She comes and goes through conventional time—rethinking, reinventing, and creating new. The effect is a powerful reminder of the past and exploration into the now, always creating a new experience for the user. Patricia was born in Oviedo, Spain, and now lives and works in Milan where she runs Studio Urquiola.

DAVID BARRASS 

David has a keen interest in the role of sensation and perception on improving user experience of products. Originally, from the U.K., he is based in Shanghai where he manages Haworth’s portfolio of products and leads the team responsible for product design, development, and engineering in the Asia-Pacific Region.
