»I am very honored to receive the award ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Interior for Scala by Holmegaard. It is always an amazing process to have a living material such as glass to retain its quality in an industrial production.
Therefore, it is very special to receive this award for the Scala collection, where function and shape are optimized in one glass design.«
