Frame Moooi Award Selects Jana Scholze as 2013 Juror

Organizers of the Frame Moooi Award are thrilled to announce the juror for this year’s competition: Jana Scholze, Curator of Contemporary Furniture and Product Design at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

‘We are excited to join forces with Jana and the Victoria and Albert Museum – a leading international design institution – for the 2013 edition of the award,’ says Robert Thiemann, editor-in-chief of Frame. ‘As a curator and expert, Jana is a neutral authority with an eye for the most inventive, fresh, modern and creative designs. We look forward to seeing who she selects as the 2013 award winner.’

As the Frame Moooi Award juror, Scholze will select the top 10 finalists who will be invited to the grand finale party during Milan’s Salone del Mobile in April, 2013. Here the award will culminate at a cocktail event on 10 April, where the grand prize winner will be announced – and walk away with the €25,000 cash prize. Scholze will also be part of a panel discussion and Q&A session on 11 April, where press and public will be invited to ask her about the process of selecting a winner.

‘The Frame Moooi Award is as exceptional and meaningful as it is open, specific and generous,’ says Scholze. ‘The aim to celebrate and promote innovation is convincingly supported by inviting simply everyone with a suitable project. The significant prize acknowledges not only excellence in design thinking and making, but encourages both designers and the creative industries alike.’

Scholze has worked on a number of major exhibitions, including Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970 (2008), plus she often publishes and teaches internationally about contemporary design.

‘Hosting the Frame Moooi Award 2013 is a great honour and I am expecting to see outstanding and compelling, attractive and quiet, as well as fascinating and speculative work,’ says Scholze. She follows French architect and designer Philippe Starck, who was the 2012 award juror and crowned Dutch designer Bertjan Pot’s Stairway to Heaven as winner.
