Hutten’s designs won numerous international awards, such as the Red Dot Award, LAI interior award, Frame magazine / The great Indoors award and the German Design Award.
I have been coming to Milan for Salone del Mobile every year since I was a design student. It's usually one of the yearly highlights, where we show new projects to the world, and see so many friends again. Milan is a city where I feel at home because it evokes so many good memories, and it was painful to see this city in such a terrible situation. I am nevertheless sure it will recover from this episode fully, and know that we will value it even more in the future.
