Right at the beginning of the program, awards for best realizations in all categories were granted, as selected by an extended International Panel of Judges, who, alongside the members of the judging committee, hosted two international designers – the renowned designer and illustrator with a New York address Mirko Ilić and Slovenian industrial designer Jure Miklavc, in both the professional and student categories, respectively.
The Croatian Designers’ Society Lifetime Achievement Award was posthumously granted to Tomislav Lerotić for his outstanding contribution to Croatian design. In the Award’s citation, the Croatian Designers’ Society vice-president Koraljka Vlajo put special emphasis on Lerotić’s observations of important issues in ecology and waste management and reminisced about his renowned project of systems for separate waste paper collecting.

The Croatian Design Exhibitions are to this day the only manifestation of its kind in Croatia that systematically include all areas of design, and have been exceptionally received by both the professional and general public for a series of years running. Positioning themselves between manifestations with a long tradition such as the Zgraf (dedicated to visual communications) and the Zagreb Salon of Applied Art and Design, these exhibitions, through their internal structure and strict selection procedures, attempt to reflect a realistic state of the Croatian design scene from a market-based, social and cultural aspect. The goal of the exhibition is to affirm design as a marketable and socially relevant profession. Through a strict selection the best in contemporary Croatian design is evaluated, and high-quality standards are being established and selected in contemporary production. The exhibition 1112 strives to encompass the totality of design creativity in Croatia – from extremely market-based conditioned projects to those in the non-profit, cultural and research context, all the while systematically following quality student production within the framework of Croatian educational institutions.
It’s also worth mentioning that three exhibitions organized by the HDD (Croatian Designers’ Society) are being set up in front of an international audience – Contemporary Croatian Design IN A NUTSHELL was showcased within the context of the major exhibition “Everyday Discoveries” in Helsinki, the world design capital 2012. “Design Tourism: CROATIAN HOLIDAY“ is set to open within Skopje Design Week as well as at the Festival of Croatian Culture in France, while a completely new concept entitled “CROATIAN EVERYDAY” is also set to be displayed at that same manifestation.
If you missed yesterday’s opening, be sure to check out the HDD (Croatian Designers’ Society) exhibition, open at the Museum of Arts and Crafts until November 15, 2012.
You can enjoy today’s activities as follows:
6:00 PM MIRKO ILIĆ: Symbols of Hate – lecture
7:00 PM STOP, THINK, GO, DO – book promotion and discussion,
while the Croatian Designers’ Society will keep you informed on all further lectures, presentations and related activities.
Congratulations to all the winners!
