A total of 20 prizes and 35 honourable mentions that acknowledge initiatives and projects where design has created the capacity to transform, creative and cultural value, and the possibility of offering solutions to different problems.
“Frank Memelsdorff Design and Business”
This year’s event added two new specific categories to the awards: “Design and Research” and “Frank Memelsdorff Design and Business”. It was in latter category that the international jury and the organising committee behind these awards acknowledged the Cosentino Group for “incorporating design as a key part of its strategy and conveying the development of new ideas, products, services, spaces and experiences through effective communication”.
The award ceremony took place yesterday (Monday) in the cultural centre, Matadero Madrid – where the Biennial’s headquarters are located. Representing Cosentino was the Manager of Cosentino Madrid, Jose Luís Calleja, who attended the event and received the prize.
