The first, The Design Plus, is awarded to only 30 designs, which must show superior design quality and utility, while upholding ecological and technological standards. The second, Top 12 Habitare 2003, is voted on by leading interior design journalists at the well-attended Finnish interior design expo held in Helsinki.
