– We are very honoured to receive such a prestigious design award says Elisabeth Slunge, Director Global Range and Communications at Kinnarps. SPACE has really had a great year when it comes to receiving awards, which we see as a great acknowledgement of the concept itself and the design work behind it. We thank the jury for awarding SPACE, and we look forward to presenting more about this versatile series at this year’s Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair February 6-10.

This year more than 500 companies and design firms sent in their contributions. The GOOD DESIGN™ jury selected over 900 product designs and graphics from over 46 nations worthy of the GOOD DESIGN™ Award for their Design Excellence.
SPACE is a furniture concept designed by Stefan Brodbeck (Brodbeck Design) for today's and tomorrow's way of working, meeting and storing. The range is based on a large number of storage modules which are connected and combined depending on the functionality and look you want. The flexibility of the range enables both concentration and discussions as well as space for group and private areas.
– Design creates differentiation as well as orientation. So does the storage system SPACE, which has exciting features and options to create functional but also emotional and inspiring office space solutions explains the designer behind SPACE Stefan Brodbeck, Brodbeck Design.
