Dutch designer Hella Jungerius has been awarded the 2011 Wallpaper* Award for Best Armchair for her Bob Garden Club Chair.
Hm I have to head over to Rotterdam, where the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has an overview exposition of Hella’s work – oh irony – just now she has moved away from Rotterdam to Berlin recently… Bob is on display there.
