The C²DH wins Luxembourg Design Awards
The C²DH wins two Design Awards for its virtual exhibitions ‘Framing Luxembourg’ and ‘Minett Stories. Remixing Industrial Pasts in the Digital Age’. Meanwhile, the production studio Explose won two Design Awards for the multimedia project 'A Colônia Luxemburguesa'.

'Framing Luxembourg. A storytelling experiment’, which retraces the history of official statistics in Luxembourg, wins the prize for best ‘Data Design’. The virtual exhibition ‘is conceived as a timeline playfully disseminating the main statistics of some stepstones in national history. It is a joint project between the C²DH, STATEC and Paul Zahlen, the author of the related book. The exhibition was co-designed by Daniele Guido, the C²DH’s lead designer and full-stack developer specialising in data visualisation, network visualisation and digital methods.

Jury’s statement: C²DH has handled a large amount of data in both a visually appealing manner and in a user-friendly way. The interested layperson is addressed with this special kind of historiography, but especially the researcher finds here a valuable and reliable tool for very detailed questions and perspectives.

The SILVER award in the category ‘Digital Design’ goes to ‘Minett Stories. Remixing Industrial Pasts in the Digital Age’. The virtual exhibition deals with the history and identity of Minett, the industrial region in the south of Luxembourg, in 21 chapters. It was developed in collaboration between the C²DH, the Milanese design studio Calibro and the software company Inmagik based in Bergamo.

Winner of both the category ‘Digital Design’ and ‘Corporate Design’ is the transmedia documentary ‘A Colônia Luxemburguesa’, supported by the C²DH, Samsa Film, and the Centre National de l'Audiovisuel (CNA). The documentary by Dominique Santana explores a century of common industrial, cultural and social heritage. We congratulate the agency “Explose”, responsible for the design of this project and winner of the Design Awards.
