"It's been an amazing journey. This is a global jury working to make judgements on an international group of design entries. Being here is really seeing what the future of design is."
Antony Chan | Cream / Hong Kong Interior Design Association | Hong Kong, P.R. China
"It is both very interesting and a great challenge at the same time. At times the difference between products is very fine, very detailed. I've learned so much from my colleagues and will leave enriched from the experience."
Barbara Schmidt | Kahla/Thüringen Porzellan GmbH | Thüringen, Germany
