Bemz Design Award Finalists 2016

The Bemz Design Award supports designers of the future. Over 11,000 voters from 32 countries narrowed a field of hundreds down to the following 5 finalists. Their designs will be available to buy as a Bemz cover in August.

Finalist from Germany (student category)

Lena Maier - Artiskok

Lena attends Deutsche Meisterschule für Mode Designschule in Munich. Her design represents abstract artichoke flowers and is complimented with bright, clear and contrastingly rich colours to create a Scandinavian style.

Finalist from Sweden (student category)

Anna Möller - För att himlen är blå

Anna attends Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Her design, translated as because the sky is blue, is inspired by traditional Chinese ink paintings and is an homage to Swedish nature and its abundant fresh air.

Finalist from France (student category)

Charlène Juille - Flying on Ice

Charlène attends Ecole Supérieure d'Art Françoise Conte in Paris. Her design is inspired by the sharp, cracked icebergs and birds of Iceland. Her pattern was originally created in Chinese ink and watercolour playing on blue tones.

Finalist from the United Kingdom (student category)

Roseanne M Jack - Urquhart

Roseanne attends The Glasgow School of Art specialising in knitted textile design. Urquhart is named after the sheep farm where she grew up. She was inspired by the colours of the vegetation around the farm’s pond as well as its resident animals, choosing wool as an organic material to incorporate into her pattern.

Winner from the Public

Virginie Roblin - Vases Graphiques

Virginie is from France and her botanical design is inspired by houseplants and 50s designers (including Lucienne Day and Stig Lindberg). Here she uses plants and geometric shapes to create a new style of interior garden.
