The award ceremony took place in connection to the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair February 10 februari 2016.
The ceremony was opened by a key note speech by New York based contempory artist och cyborg Neil Harbisson dressed in the colours of the Swedish flag. Harbisson was born completely colour blind, but an antenna attached to his head turns colours into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of colours — and even listen to faces and paintings.
