2022 Innovation Awards Winners

Judges' Choice

BORA's X BO Steam Oven won the Judges' Choice award for 2022. The innovative product blew the judges away with its versatility. The oven can be used for roasting, baking, steaming and more, it even cleans itself spotlessly after use.

People’s Choice

Røroshetta won the People's Choice award for 2022. The sleek design of their SENSE Cooker Hood caught the eye of visitors. But what really amazed the crowd was its silent function and integrated smart technology features.

Best Sustainable Design

Furnipart was awarded Best Sustainable Design for 2022. Furnipart’s Ocean IX Handles are made of recycled materials from the maritime industry such as fishing nets and ropes - yet the judges felt they hadn't compromised on style.
