”Every design appears in the context of social, technologic or economic developments. Even if it emerges for more concrete purposes, it doesn’t always follow the ideas of what’s universally valid. If this occurs, design becomes innovation, the motor for trends”, explained Andrej Kupetz, main manager of the Design Council. ”Some of the products honoured with the Interior Innovation Award 2015 have fulfilled all of the conditions to be called trend setters.”
