Balthazar winners in 2021

the winners and laureates have been chosen

Toon De Somer – Ton sur Tooon divider (design Mathias De Ferm)

Best Of Belgium

It’s astonishing how a single metal element can make a world of difference. How it adds new dimensions to the spatial architecture, multifunctionality and acoustics. The uprights have a rounded, L-shaped design. They offer an asymmetric picture, of open compartments on one side and closed surfaces on the other. Even the space inside the uprights offers a wealth of possibilities.

Laureates:
Saunaco with Cas collection 2.0 (design Studio Segers)
Theuns with Izola

EgoItaliano – Bebop

Best International

An archetypical and symbolic model, a metaphor for the (post-)coronavirus era. A re-design of the retro style, with Italian flair. The bi-stretch fabric provides a contemporary twist. The yin yang pouffe and the combination of black and red are a perfect reflection of the current times. Bebop marks the beginning of new ‘roaring twenties’.

Laureates:
Calia with Milla
Kluskens with A-Table (design Studio Segers)

Passe Partout – Tulip (design Axel Enthoven)

Love at first sight

The elegant, slim armrests are open like the petals of a tulip in bloom. It is exceptionally inviting and heart-warming. ‘Come, take a seat.’ The cushions are both playful and comfortable. Take note of the detail in the finish. Tulip is an original, elegant interpretation of the omnipresent organic trend.

Laureates:
Moome with Lala (design Yonoh)
WR Inspired with Mona

Revor – Circular

Innovation

The time to act is now. The Circular is the perfect solution: a 100% circular pocket spring mattress. Composed of just two circular mono materials: steel and polyester. These can be completely separated and endlessly reused, with no loss of quality. Raw material waste is eliminated. A QR code facilitates the path to the circular future of your mattress.

Laureates:
LS Bedding with Ergosleep Cocon 2.0
Otium Care with Hector
