Dotation de la fondation Carmignac

Prix Visual Merchandising décerné par CHANEL

The winning project, Sardine Sardine, imagined by Madeleine Oltra and Angelo de Taisne, is a reinterpretation of outdoor holidays and all the codes of nomadic living. Under the tent in three shades of yellow and ecru, we go from the camp bed, with its mattress redesigning the inflatable tubes of our childhood, to floor mats of all sizes which lie down and overlap for more comfort, to aluminum engraved with a floral pattern. Central element in the presentation of the two winners, all the materials are natural, sustainable, recycled or with a low ecological footprint.

Prix du Public de la ville de Hyères

Claire Pondard and Léa Peyrere graduated from ECAL in Industrial Design. Observers as well as actors of the digital world and its evolution, through Anima II they take a sensitive and poetic look at technology and connected objects by adopting a transdisciplinary approach combining robotics, art, craftsmanship and biology. On view, laser-cut colored plastic sheets come to life and react to their environment, like creatures of the abyss.

Dahye Jeong


The LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022 has been awarded to Dahye Jeong for the piece A time of Sincerity. Delicate yet solid, the basket is woven out of thin horsehair to create a flexible geometric design that transposes a 500-year-old hat-making technique and combines it with an ancient earthenware form. Exploiting the natural elasticity of the horsehair fibre, it has been threaded onto a needle and woven into loops to create a work that expresses both the robustness and the beauty of life. The Craft Prize Jury celebrated Jeong’s dedication to reviving and updating the tradition, as well as the delicate perfection, transparency and lightness of the work.

2022 Twenty-five Year Award

Chapel of St. Ignatius

by Steven Holl Architects

Twenty-five Year Award

The Twenty-five Year Award by the American Institute of Architects is conferred on a building that has set a precedent, stood the test of time for 25 to 35 years and continues to set standards of excellence for its architectural design and significance. In the spiritual exercises of the Jesuits, a religious order of the Catholic Church, no single method is prescribed. Instead, the sect recognizes that "different methods helped different people." That ideal is reflected in the Chapel of St. Ignatius, Seattle University’s main chapel designed by Steven Holl Architects in 1997, where differences in light unify to support the worship and ritual needs of the university community.
