A.Vesalainen :

"The idea in folding a chair is brilliant! This proposal is a great solution for home offices, where you have s small amount of space and you can just fold you office chair away! In this proposal the idea, concept and design was of high quality."

Lekolar :

"We are delighted to receive such large amount, of high-quality proposals! Each one of them has interesting elements in them. Luggi was chosen as the winner of the competition since it answers the brief very well. Luggi offers a mobile solution for studying in various places during a day and carries one’s belongings with ease. The use of innovative new materials from BrightPlus and Natural Indigo is taken into consideration and they fit very naturally to the new product. On top of this Luggi is a fun and quirky new product and thus fits very well into new learning environments."

Annala :

"In this proposal we really liked the way the designer has captured the time, the proposal has a clear and clean design language. It really has that something we have been searching for for Annala´s collection! The proposal´s color combinations are bright and pleasant, ready and they really work. In addition to this the designer has already thought about Natural Indigo´s colors, which is a plus. Manufacturing the design will also provide many opportunities to modify the design to fit different purposes."
