Two awards have highlighted the communal value of Tsai Design Studio’s Nested Bunk Beds. First showcased at the Design Indaba Expo, the studio’s solution for over-full orphanages received an International Red Dot Award in the design concept category. With big companies such as Sony, BMW and Porsche participating, and selected from 478 participants across 48 countries, a Red Dot serves as worldwide acknowledgement of the concept’s quality and ingenuity. On the local front, Tsai Design Studio won the décor category in the Top Billing/Momentum Lifestyle Award. Although Tsai was selected based on overall portfolio, the judges confirmed that it was the social value of the Nested Bunk Bed that clinched the award.
