The Morpholio Project has just announced the winners of the Pinup 2014 competition. Drawing from an impressive shortlist of finalists, the Jury – which included participants from Fast Company, Metropolis Magazine, Columbia GSAPP, and even our very own Editor-in-Chief, David Basulto – has chosen nine outstanding examples of studio, 3D-printed or unbuilt works that exemplify the best of today’s emerging talent.
Amy Azzarito, jurymember and Managing Editor at Design*Sponge ”was impressed by the number of entrants who chose to devote their time and creative energy toward addressing social problems on a global scale, demonstrating an empathetic understanding that as the world grows increasingly smaller, the problems of our neighbors are problems for which we all bear responsibility.”
Duann Scott, jurymember and Designer Evangelist at Shapeways added: ”The breadth and quality of the entrants was truly inspiring, making it very difficult to pick the winners, or to put it better, not pick more to be winners,” said .
Beyond the jury’s picks, a public competition and The Morpholio Project chose five additional winners. See them all, after the break.
This year’s jury included Greg Lindsay of FastCompany, Annie Block of Interior Design Magazine, David Basulto of ArchDaily, Caroline Williamson of Design Milk, Rafi Segal of MIT, Sammy Medina of Metropolis Magazine, Erika Owen of Core77, Diane Pham of 6sqft, Duann Scott of Shapeways, Carlo Aiello of eVolo Magazine, Mario Cipresso of Studio Shift, Jeremy Alain Siegel of BIG NYC and Amy Azzarito of Design*Sponge.

Jury Winner_Emerging talents_AE Superlab_Infinicities
“AE Superlab caught my attention with their variation of forms, and practical application. The use of 3D printing as a connector of components is one of the best uses of 3D printing, making it possible to construct complex, custom forms that would otherwise be very difficult to fabricate, and too large to 3D print.” – Duann Scott, Designer Evangelist at Shapeways

“I love the message of community with this. It seems that so many designs work to keep us engaged as a singular unit. It’s great to see something that brings us all a little closer without completely changing the way we live our day-to-day lives.” – Erika Owen , Core77
Jury Winner_Future Voices_DiJon_Dunmore_FIBERwave Pavilion
“Fiberwave pavilion is a smart research on the potential of carbon fiber and other lightweight material composites in architectural production. Form is the result of an extensive analysis of material properties and desired phenomelogical effects.” – Carlo Aiello, Editor-in-Chief at eVolo Magazine
