The independent curator will evaluate the originality, aesthetics and sustainability of the competing products

Nominations for the Archiproducts Design Awards 2021 are closed.
While waiting to discover the winners of the annual Archiproducts awards, the appointments with jury members continue, this time with blogger, designer and independent curator Alice Stori Liechtenstein, on the 2021ADA jury.

Since 2015, Alice Stori has been running the non-profit Schloss Hollenegg for Design – a project for residencies and exhibitions in the magnificent halls of the baroque castle in Austria where Alice lives. In addition to a programme of internships and workshops for young design talents, Schloss Hollenegg for Design is also a venue for exhibitions and symposia focusing on design.

 

Interview with Alice Stori Liechtenstein, member of the 2021 Archiproducts Design Awards jury

What do you expect from the entries and what characteristics should the winning products have?
I am looking for originality, an idea or concept with strong impacts and a focus on sustainability during the production process. 


How should contemporary design evolve to meet the needs of the community?
It should offer a valid alternative to current consumption, more in tune with the values of our century.

 

How do you think the pandemic has affected design?
I think the pandemic interrupted the endless vortex we were in on a daily basis, giving us the opportunity to regroup. Of course, most of us just want things to pick up exactly where they left off…maybe the pandemic has given us the opportunity refocus and choose only the really worthwhile projects.
