Jacco Maris was named one of the Architonic Top 100 Designers for 2016/17, the editors of the popular site featuring all things related to design and architecture noting, “With the Salone del Mobile Milano fast approaching, there’s no better time to reveal the premier league of creative minds that shape the design world today.” Their choices range from “living legends to young talents…the most popular designers and architects actively searched for by users of architonic.com over the course of the past twelve months.”
Jacco is in such great company with names like Tom Dixon, Paola Lenti, Patricia Urquiola, Jasper Morrison, Piero Lissoni and Marcel Wanders on the list. He’s gratifyingly wedged between Brazil’s Campana Brothers and Sweden’s Front Design Studio at number 29. We’d like to say congratulations to the talented team at Jacco Maris for these accolades. After all, when searches pile up for a particular designer, it means there is something special about the person’s artistry.
We’re pleased to say that other designers who have created products within our varied collections were tapped by Architonic’s readers for this list. These include Arik Levy, who sits at number 38; Luca Nichetto at number 78; Benjamin Hubert at number 81; and Werner Aisslinger, who took the number 92 spot. We salute all of you for the level of creativity you continue to achieve. And, Jacco, we can’t wait to see what amazing new designs you’ll be envisioning next!
