Space Duality : Red Dot Winner 2020

The Virtual Reality Installation “Space Duality” has received the internationally renowned “Red Dot Award”. The project was set up as a semester project in the Department of Interior Architecture at HEAD – Genève and took part in the USM Design Grant program. 

The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. The received “Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design” recognises the best brands and creative works of the year selected by well known expert juries. 

The awarded installation consists of seven immersive projects that offer a novel and emotional experience related to space. Entering the various VR projects, which were placed inside or on top of specially built pieces of furniture, transfers the viewer into  an unseen environment full of surprises. While some of the projects have an “enchanted” charm about them, others challenge one to redefine what “interior spaces” are in general.
