About Canvas:
Rugs made of Recycled Army Tents. Every piece is unique, every scratch is an untold story. This CANVAS rug, part of the Memorial collection, was created by Papilio to remember and honor our loved ones who lost their lives during the worldwide wars. This specific rug is made of Recycled Army tents with a cross stitch technique in leather. This Recycled collection has been launched at the Domotex Fair in January 2014 and had an amazing positive response worldwide.

About Henry Van De Velde:
Every year Design Flanders presents the Henry van de Velde Labels. These labels for products and services that were launched on the market in the foregoing year have become a reference in the Flemish and international design market. 

On Monday 25 August, the jury awarded the 2014 Henry van de Velde Label to 15 products. This was the culmination of quite a process. Companies and designers submitted almost 160 products and services. These submissions were then presented anonymously to the jury during a first session. More than 80 products and services made it into the second round during which they were exhibited “live” in the Design Flanders Gallery. The space has never been as full as this year. Everything was tested and examined in detail during this second round.

The jury was impressed by the high level and the good design of the submissions. As a consequence, it was no easy matter to identify those products that really stood out and distinguished themselves from the others, as well as fulfilling the most rigorous design criteria. The product or service must be contemporary and innovative; must have aesthetic qualities; a great deal of thought must have gone into even the smallest details; must be functional and easy to use; must be sustainable and environmentally-friendly.

Naturally you can also find the Henry van de Velde Labels on our website: 
The labels of the previous years are also listed here.
