Ketel One: Shortlist

Meet the Ketel One Legacy Prize Fund recipients

Recipients of the Ketel One Legacy Prize Fund were announced during Modern Craft Project exhibitions this Spring, where the work of the recipients as well as all the shortlisted applicants was on show. 

Congratulations to Bethan Wood, Daniel Heer,  Marcos Kaiser Mori, John Pomp, and Helen Bird who were all named as the Prize Fund recipients for their country.

To select the Prize Fund recipients readers voted for their favourite Modern Craftsperson online, these votes aided the final decision which was made by a panel of locally sourced designers, marketing experts and top-class business professionals that included Bob Nolet, Executive Vice President, Ketel One; Tony Chambers, Wallpaper* Editor-in-Chief; and Jeremy Lindley, Global Design Director, Diageo.

After the recipients were announced we travelled the globe to meet each modern craftsperson in their home town. Now you can hear all about their Modern Craft Project experiences by watching the interviews in our video section.

Heer explains that through modern crafting techniques horsehair mattresses are experiencing a bit of a comeback. Heer 'wraps the natural materials, which forever characterize the horsehair mattress, in exquisite fabrics, this has the effect of creating a newly defined surface and puts the horsehair mattress in a new context.'
