Award / Buero Wagner earns the AZ Awards of Merit for 2014
In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure also recognized 36 brilliant projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit in its fourth annual AZ Awards.
From a home that seems to float on a plinth to a lounger inspired by snow shoes, and a lighting system based on virtual LEDs, the Award of Merit winners are ingenious and elegant. Along with the 13 winners, these works were celebrated at Azure’s gala on Friday night.
