Spacon & X won the Emerging Interior Designer of the Year award, with judges saying: "This studio addresses contemporary subjects in the design industry and beyond. Their designs are fun but not childish, and show a delightful use of colour."

The studio's name is an abbreviation of "spatial conversion and cross-functionalism". Based in Copenhagen, the multidisciplinary design studio is directed by architect Nikoline Dyrup Carlsen, scenographic designer and advertising producer Svend Jacob Pedersen, and architect and fashion designer Malene Hvidt.
