COPENHAGEN, DENMARK РMAY 16: Samuel Ross, Founder and Designer, A-Cold-Wall, takes part in the ‘sustainability and design decisions: good, bad or ugly?’ Panel Discussion during Day Two of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2019 at DR Koncerthuset on May 16, 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Since its first edition in 2009, Copenhagen Fashion Summit has established itself as the world’s leading business event on sustainability in fashion. Convening major fashion industry decision makers on a global scale, the Summit has become the nexus for agenda-setting discussions on the most critical environmental, social and ethical issues facing our industry and planet. Marking its 10th anniversary, the next edition of Copenhagen Fashion Summit takes place on 15-16 May 2019 at the Copenhagen Concert Hall under the patronage of HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark. The Summit is organised by Global Fashion Agenda, a non-profit leadership forum on fashion sustainability that works to mobilise the global fashion system to change the way we produce, market and consume fashion, for a world beyond next season.

A-COLD-WALL* designer Samuel Ross has been honored with the 2019 Hublot Design Prize in recognition of his multidiscipline approach to design and communication. The prize included an award of 100,000 CHF, or nearly $101,000.

His winning objects include the Concave 1 steel bench and Terminal 1, a refuge point designed to house eco blankets made from sustained and upcycled materials, the latter of which you can see below. Ross presented his objects at the Hublot Prize exhibition as a demonstration of his ongoing commitment to design of the future being “more sociable” and “function-led.”

To coincide with the award, Ross has announced a new design venture called SR_A (Samuel Ross & Associates).

Last year’s winner was Dozie Kanu, a young Brooklyn-based furniture designer.
