This year’s the Best of Year Interior Design 2020 Awards ceremony was virtual and took place on DesignTV by SANDOW, presented by Pottery Barn. For each award category, there are five honorees and one winner.
We are very honored to have three products made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon on the list. This speaks not only to the variety of products that is possible to make with our ECONYL® nylon, but also to the aesthetics and sustainability features. Why still use virgin nylon when you can make such beautiful high-end products with a nylon that comes 100% from waste?
As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. In fact, it reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil.
RESIDENTIAL RUGS + CARPETS CATEGORY:
The beautiful Minus collection of rugs by the Brazilian company Punto e Filo Tapetes (Punto e Filo Rugs), made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon, is one of the honorees in this category.
The Minus rugs collection is designed by designer Alessandra Delgado. The name of the collection originates from Latin and means ‘less’: the perfect concept of minimalist elegance that modernist master Mies Van Der Rohe eternalized with the iconic phrase “less is more” — present in the essence of this rug´s creation. For these pieces, Alessandra was inspired more specifically in great names of Brazilian modernist architecture, such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, Burle Marx and Paulo Mendes da Rocha.
The result is a collection of nine pieces that bring the possibility of multiple combinations of colors and sizes, manufactured exclusively by Punto e Filo — which allows the customization of pieces, handmade one by one, like real paintings.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CATEGORY:
The noho move™ chair is among the honorees in the environmental impact category. The noho move™ chair was created to transform the traditional static nature of home furniture by integrating the dynamic ergonomic comfort of a premium office chair and sustainable design, to create a chair that flexes and flows with any body and can last a lifetime. noho tapped into ECONYL® nylon for its sustainable and regenerative qualities to reimagine conventional furniture design in a sustainable way.
BROADLOOM CARPET CATEGORY:
OBJECT CARPET is the winner in the broadloom category with a new collection of carpets named ‘OBJECT CARPET x Ippolito Fleitz Group’.
All eight new carpet types — with a total of 111 colors — can be combined with each other, offering architects and designers great freedom to create exciting dialogues between colors and structures. All variants of the collection are also available as wall-to-wall and fitted carpets (RUGX), and many of them also as self-laying acoustic tiles.
Furthermore, OBJECT CARPET minimizes the environmental impact in production by using regenerated ECONYL® nylon.
