The Competition for outstanding design in hand-made carpets and rugs

Carpet Design Awards, DOMOTEX

"Back in 1987 I was one of the first to work on developing new designs, and I have seen how the contemporary carpet scene has evolved amazingly over the last 30 years and really made its mark. So I am all the more delighted to be a juror for this year's competition."

The Carpet Design Awards, the world's top international accolade for contemporary hand-made carpets and rugs, has a new jury lineup for DOMOTEX 2017. The new jury of specialists from the design world and the carpet industry is now chaired by the award-winning carpet designer Stephanie Odegard from New York.
She is joined on the panel by interior designer Vanessa Brady from London, Wilhard Kühne, carpet expert and buyer from Dogern in Germany, Kustaa Saksi, designer and graphic artist from the Netherlands, and Hadi Teherani, architect and designer based in Hamburg.

They will be working together to select the best and most original designer carpets and rugs, which represent a special combination of design, quality and artisan skills. This coveted award will be presented next year for the twelfth time at the world's leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings.

The designer pieces will be on display throughout DOMOTEX on the Innovations@DOMOTEX Area in Hall 17.

The presentation of the Carpet Design Awards is one of the highlights of the annual DOMOTEX show. Excitement mounts each year when the winners are presented with their prizes on the Sunday of the show, at a special award ceremony attended by numerous guests from the international carpet industry.
