Scott Henderson to Design Partner Country Presentation at Ambiente

Frankfurt, Germany—Designer Scott Henderson will design the Partner Country presentation at Ambiente, scheduled for Feb. 13-17, 2015 here.

The Partner Country project is an important part of the international fair. Each year a different country is chosen as the fair’s “partner.” “Scott Henderson is distinguished by an uncompromising and unmistakable design style, especially when it comes to designing consumer goods. He has a great talent for giving mundane articles a playful quality without impairing their functionality and we are delighted he has agreed to create the very popular Partner Country presentation at the next Ambiente,” said Nicoltte Naumann, vice president Ambiente and Tendence.

Henderson’s designs are widely recognized and have been included in the New York Times Magazine ’s feature on the 20th century’s best designers and I.D. magazine’s Annual Design Review. He has also won numerous awards, including the Design Plus Award, the Good Design Award and the IDSA Industrial Design Excellence Award.

“Designers today think very globally. However, it is fascinating to study the subtle differences that naturally occur in a designer’s work from one country to the next. I am looking forward to exploring the point of view that is expressed when viewing a collection of well-designed objects from U.S.-based designers and companies and what statement the collection may demonstrate,” said Henderson.
