Hello Philippe Starck!

The Frame Moooi Award has announced the 10 shortlisted projects, amongst 891 submissions over 79 countries - and Facet Studio is in the top 10!!


Here is a description of the award from the designboom website:
the FRAME moooi award 2012 is hosted by dutch furniture company moooi in collaboration with FRAME magazine. it's the year’s biggest inaugural interior design award and will be concluded in milan during april’s salone del mobile fair.
the award celebrates the 10 years of production and exhibition activities of renowned design brand moooi. designboom has been the exclusive online media partner and a whopping 891 submissions were received by designers in 79 countries. ... participants were responding to the brief which asked designers and architects to submit interior space design along with furniture and lighting objects that were CUSTOM-developed in a worldwide context.
the contest has been judged by french designer philippe starck, he selected the shortlist with an anonymous approach, in that he didn’t know the designers’ names or countries of origins. ‘I’m often invited to judge competitions,’ he says. ‘I’m happy to say that the level of this one is clearly higher than average, a very nice surprise.’ the designs and their creators will be featured in the may/june issue of FRAME magazine.
Facet Studio custom designed "Shoe Box" for the project Sneakerology.
The 'Shoe box" is made of plywood and resin, each has its own dedicated light source to individually illuminate the displayed item.
The plywood wall of the box houses all the electrical wiring and structural fixing, which enables the "Shoe boxes' to be stacked together and to be structurally strong enough to resist people pushing against the stacked "Shoe Box" wall when it is used as partition screen or shop facade.
