Great news for Lausanne-based design studio Panter & Tourron. Their «Tense» collection has just been awarded Furniture Design of the Year at the prestigious Dezeen Awards.

Presented in April 2019 at Milan Design Week and more recently at Design Days (Geneva), «Tense» is a collection of flat pack furniture including a table, chair, screen dividers, pendant light and wall light. It explores the evolution of living in a time of global mobility and fluid identities.

The Dezeen Awards judges commented:

«We appreciate the consciousness of the lightness and logistics of «Tense». The intelligent design produces less waste and considers the fact that as a species we now live lighter with increasingly nomadic lifestyles. This research project has great potential to evolve.»
