On January 30th, the annual Henry van de Velde awards, the Belgian Oscars for design, will be presented. Within six categories – Communication, Design-led crafts, Ecodesign, Efficiency, Everyday Life and Healthcare – all designs will be subdivided after which a professional jury will choose the winners. Among the nominees we are happy to find a number of Wanderful.design. But before the winners can collect their price, you, the public still has a vote that can make a change. You can still vote until December 22nd. Choose a #wwwwanderful design object, project or service and make sure they get all the credits they deserve for the next Henry van de Velde Public Award 2017!
