LOEWE FOUNDATION Trophy by Akex Brogden

The initiative is spearheaded by LOEWE creative director Jonathan Anderson to promote the importance of craft in today’s culture.

With the prize, the LOEWE FOUNDATION, created by the leading luxury house that began as a collective of craftsmen, wishes to recognise contemporary artisans whose talent, vision and specialised skill will set a new standard for the future.

Since the announcement, the award has attracted numerous submissions and the attention from the international art and design community. The LOEWE FOUNDATION, established as a private cultural foundation in 1988 by Enrique Loewe Lynch, is now revealing the winner’s trophy, designed by acclaimed British silversmith Alex Brogden.

Today, under the direction of Sheila Loewe, the FOUNDATION continues to promote creativity, educational programs and to safeguard heritage in the fields of poetry, dance, design and craft, photography and architecture.
