With this year’s prestigious awards and nominations, we have proven that space is much more than aesthetics and we have become the most awarded Croatian interior design agency.
Even though almost a year has gone by since the ‘Croatia is Croatia’ exhibition, created for the 133rd anniversary of Croatia osiguranje, awards for the project keep coming. Following the exhibition’s great success, Brigada took home the global IDA Design Excellence Award for best designed exhibition space, as well as the prestigious Red Dot award for Communication Design. Being awarded a third Red Dot and thus receiving valuable recognition was momentous. Further recognition of Brigada’s work arrived in the form of the agency’s nomination for a global Cresta award, which aims to promote creative excellence in advertising and marketing communications.
By winning a German Design Award for the ‘Croatia is Croatia’ project, we have been recognised as an important actor on the European design scene. As stated by the award jury, “the idea of the »time tunnel« was inventively implemented, whereby the real rain is what completes the multi-sensory experience.”
Furthermore, we were listed in LUX Life 2018’s Top 50 in Interior Design, in the category of office design, proving our international visibility.
Together with Bruketa&Žinić&Grey, we won an Effie and MIXX awards. Moreover, the ‘Croatia is Croatia’ exhibition won an award at the Biennial Exhibition of Croatian Design 1718, which also selected the project we realised in collaboration with the organisers of Design Week Zagreb for the third edition of the festival.
In addition, our work was recognised at the 53rd Zagreb Salon of architecture, which displayed four of our projects, realised in the area of office design (Kofein, Nanobit), retail design (Neostar showroom), and exhibition design (Croatia osiguranje). The award list continues with two Big SEE prizes, for the Eclectic office gallery and Ne.Ne.Ne. Shop.
November brings another opportunity for a valuable award in the finals of the INSIDE World Festival of Interiors in Amsterdam. As one of the finalists, we will present our work and the ‘Croatia is Croatia’ exhibition, side by side with global agencies.
