A-COLD-WALL* designer Samuel Ross has been honored with the 2019 Hublot Design Prize in recognition of his multidiscipline approach to design and communication. The prize included an award of 100,000 CHF, or nearly $101,000.
His winning objects include the Concave 1 steel bench and Terminal 1, a refuge point designed to house eco blankets made from sustained and upcycled materials, the latter of which you can see below. Ross presented his objects at the Hublot Prize exhibition as a demonstration of his ongoing commitment to design of the future being "more sociable" and "function-led."
To coincide with the award, Ross has announced a new design venture called SR_A (Samuel Ross & Associates).
Last year's winner was Dozie Kanu, a young Brooklyn-based furniture designer.
