And the first i.materialise Designer of the Year is….

Today we’re happy to announce the very first winner of the i.materialise ‘Designer of the Year’ Award. The jury voted for the last time and after counting the became clear that AmiosyA is the big winner of this competition! Congratulations!


Fried Vancraen about the winner: “Thanks to our collaborations with established, but also young innovative designers, in the .MGX collection, I had, as CEO of Materialise, the pleasure to witness most of the history of design innovations using 3D printing. Today, as 3D printing is growing in popularity, I must admit that some of the freshness and innovativeness is disappearing.  But not with AmniosyA, this design collective has some outstanding designs.  With their lamp ‘Levity’ they still ‘elevate’ concepts resulting in a new design language and also their accessories escape from the ordinary themes.”
