Fespa has announced the three winners of its Printeriors 2018 design competition. The winning designs will feature in this year’s Printeriors Airport Lounge of the Future, at Fespa Global Print Expo, which takes place from 15 to 18 May 2018 at Messe Berlin.
The winners are:
Linn Warme (Sweden).
Freya Richmond (UK).
Anne Krogh Tolstrup (Denmark).
The winners were decided by competition judges: Christian Duyckaerts, Fespa president and owner of Retail Communicators; Christophe Aussenac, Fespa vice president and director ATC Groupe; and Debbie McKeegan, textile ambassador for Fespa.
The brief was to design a pattern to be realised in every element of the Printeriors feature titled ‘Airport Lounge of the Future 2030’. The final three designs will be used on furniture, walling, flooring, windows and soft furnishings.
The competition received 180 entries and due to a very high standard of entrants, the organisation also shortlisted the following five designers who are all based in the UK, with their designs also being featured within Printeriors.

Debbie McKeegan commented, ‘The quality of entries for our first Printeriors competition was exemplary and a tribute to the talent of the next design generation. After careful consideration, and much deliberation, three designers offering a unique vision were selected.’
Christian Duyckaerts added, ‘The number of good design entries made it very difficult to pick three winners. The winning designs reflect a perfect combination between design and colour selection within three totally different atmospheres and all of them very suitable for printed interior design. I’m looking forward to seeing how they are realised in Printeriors.’
The three winners have won a trip to Fespa 2018 in Berlin to see their designs come to life.
