Czech Grand Design

The nominations for Czech Grand Design 2012 Awards was made public at the exhibition opening at the National Technical Museum on December 20, 2012.

The exhibition, which will take place until March 31, 2013, presents the results of the voting procedure by the Academy of Design of the Czech Republic that consists of 51 curators, theorists, and journalists from the Czech Republic and abroad. In the first round, the Academy nominated 134 entities in 8 categories with 206 projects in total.

Thus, the visitors will have an opportunity to see works by the nominated designers in the following categories: Designer of the Year, Fashion Designer of the Year, Jewelry Designer of the Year, Graphic Designer of the Year, and Photographer of the Year.

The best design of the year 2012 will be displayed in a surprising architectural installation designed by Ondřej Tobola and Radim Babák from the studio of Hippos Design, who won the Designer of the Year 2010 Czech Grand Design Award. The exhibition will be installed on a huge velodrome. Thus, a visitor standing in the ellipse will become the pivot of the best design made in the Czech Republic during the previous year.

The graphic design of the exhibition was made by Martina Černá from the studio of Imagery. 

Three finalists from the 2012 nominees in each category will be announced at the nomination ceremony in Letenský zámeček on January 17, 2013 after the second round has been closed. The winners will be selected during the third round of voting.

The exhibition is co-produced by the National Technical Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the organizing agency of Profil Media. The exhibition is curated by Jana Zielinski and Jiří Macek in collaboration with Jiří Hulák from the National Technical Museum.

The number of nominees is very big. It is incredible how many new talents have arisen, primarily in the field of fashion, which one can see in the category Discovery of the Year – Preciosa Award. The Designer of the Year category is very strong this year as well. Apart from famous names, one can find designers from the younger generation with experience from abroad who have demonstrated to be interesting personalities, such as Lucie Koldová, Jan Plecháč, Henry Wielgus, and Matěj Chabera. It is no wonder that the first two of them are winners of the Discovery of the Year Awards from previous years of the Czech Grand Design Awards,” state curators Jana Zielinski and Jiří Macek.  

The exhibition will gradually change so that the finalists and later winners in individual categories are highlighted. They will be indicated with special graphic design. 

Award of the Public:

The public has an opportunity to have an impact on the final results. Individuals can vote directly at the exhibition in the National Technical Museum, and on-line during the second round. The public can choose from nominees in the following categories: Designer of the Year, Graphic Designer of the Year, Photographer of the Year, Fashion Designer of the Year, and Jewelry Designer of the Year.

The first round of voting will take place from December 20, 2013 to January 15, 2013 at the exhibition. Each visitor will receive a form to nominate 3 designers for the Award of the Public from the entire number of nominees. The votes will be counted on February 17. Five designers with the highest number of votes will proceed to the second round of voting, which will take place from February 18, 2012 to March 10, 2013 on selected websites, including www.czechgranddesign.cz, as well as at the exhibition.
