For the first time, the products of the year were selected per category for the Best of Interior Award. In the wall design category, NMC received the product award for the IL ARSTYL design lighting profiles – the decorative profiles from the premium brand NOËL & MARQUET for indirect lighting.

One profile – double benefit

The five NOËL & MARQUET profiles IL5, IL6, IL7 MEMORY, IL8 and IL9 MEMORY, designed by Michaël Bihain, are puristic, straightforward and perfectly proportioned to correspond to the modern zeitgeist. Only recently they were awarded the Red Dot Award Product Design 2020 for their outstanding design quality. Thanks to a small notch on the back, they can also be fitted with LED strips and therefore also be used as an indirect lighting solution. On the IL7 MEMORY and IL9 MEMORY profiles, the renowned designer has integrated the contours of historical mouldings into new, minimalist and design-oriented ceiling mouldings. The minimalistic element becomes more present and what exists already is cleverly modernised. All profiles meet the strict requirements of fire class Bs-2, d0. Whether in new buildings, renovations or in the project business, the clear geometric shapes offer a wide range of uses and combination options for a new, very unique design world and thus exactly the right balance between elegant restraint and exciting accents.

Best of Interior Award

The Best of Interior Award is the most important home design award for interior architects and interior designers. Outstanding private furnishing concepts were again sought in 2020 – and found by a top-class jury. Bettina Billerbeck, editor-in-chief of SCHÖNER WOHNEN magazine, design journalist Janina Temmen, interior designer Pia A. Döll and interior designer Stephanie Thatenhorst selected the 40 best and most important interior projects of the year as well as the 13 best and most innovative products in the sector, which were all presented with awards on 17.9.2020. They will be on view in an exhibition at the House of Architecture in Munich from 11-29 January 2021. In the Best of Interior 2020 book, which will be published at the same time, author Janina Temmen uses personal living stories to document the most beautiful living concepts in the current German interior scene.
