Marbella Design 2021, which closed at the Palacio de Congresos on Sunday, was once again a huge critical success.
Over eleven days, more than 16,000 visitors enjoyed avant-garde art and design in 46 installations. Dozens of interior designers and more than 150 exclusive firms presented their most cutting-edge, risky and evocative imaginings under this year’s theme: the Andalusian Town.
Marbella Design also featured a full schedule of activities, conferences, talks and an awards ceremony – the Marbella Design Awards 2021. The jury of Ana Barreales, Enric Pastor, Erico Navazo, Paloma Gómez Marín and Pepe Leal awarded five prizes

The award for sustainable and ecological space, for supporting local crafts and the sustainability project that this entails, went to the Artesanía de Castilla La-Mancha by Worn Studio space.
The award for the best product design, for the iconic design, the use of shapes and the elegance of materials, went to Sergio Prieto’s elephant armchair in the Addictions Design by Madrid in Love space.
