Winning the “Innovation of the Year” prize means a lot in many ways. Getting the confirmation that the concept and the way it was integrated is a good solution, gives an enormous boost to continue the hard work. I feel honored to receive the award, evaluated by an international jury of professionals who have been in the business for many years.

Another reason why winning the prize is so important is that I now get an opportunity to show the product to the public, which I otherwise never could have reached. I really hope the sideboard will catch the attention of some furniture manufacturers with a sales network, so we can cooperate to bring it to the market.

Wouter Myny, the designer behind the SecretAir – The discrete home office sideboard and SIT Furniture Design Awards 2020 winner of the “Innovation of the Year”.
