    Display
    Winner: Yumin Art Noveau Collection (Phoenix Jeju, South Korea) by JAC Studios

    The judges commented: “The existing context, an architecture by Tadao Ando, is respected and a new experience has been created with subtlety. Human sensations are considered: light, bear-footed experience and sitting very close to the floor.”
