The Great Indoors Award is an international, biennial, interior design award.

On Friday, november 15th the winners of the 2013 edition were announced in four categories, with a total prize money of 20.000 EUR. The jury selected 20 nominees, four in each category: Show & Sell, Relax & Consume, Concentrate & Collaborate, and Serve & Facilitate.

It is the third time that i29 interior architects wins this award. In the previous editions of 2009 with office 03 (Gummo), and in 2011 with office 04 (Tribal DDB). We are honored to receive the award again this year with our project social 01. Many thanks to our partners of VMX Architects, who asked us to work on this project together.

i29 interior architects winner of The Great Indoors Awards 2013

A whimsical setting of colour-coded islands enlivens the ordinary interior of an office for the unemployed in Den Hoorn. Spaces separated by colour, instead of by walls, enforce the humane design concept that people should not be placed in boxes. Swaying the jury was i29’s use of ‘banal elements in an interesting way to create complexity’ in a design that ‘challenges people to move through the space to discover it’.
