Winner was Louise Haglund

Her "Art as a wall" was valued as the best of all submitted artwork

She is a Swedish Art Director student at the Borås Yrkshögskola. She says that she finds this inspiring when you have many meetings during the day. You need a "flow" state in order to pursue your tasks. Jury loved the work and it was also very much valued in the company social media channels. 

Pyry Luminen

Her design "Lifeblood" was much loved.

It was fresh, supports nicely Ahlstrom-Munksjö's environmental commitment and generates energy to the meeting room where it will be located.

Noushka Galley

The third place went to Nouska Galley and her green design

Noushka Galley's geometric and rooty design represented a traditional wallpaper design. It will bring linear lines and green freshness to the room.
