Iris van Herpen was also awarded the Golden Eye prizeĀ at the awards. She collaborated on the designs with architects Philip Beesley and Julia Koerner, and MIT Media Lab’s Neri Oxman. The jury commented:

With Voltage, Van Herpen gives the world a view into the future of fashion. It is impressive to see how she, at such a young age, succeeds in giving so much body to her work, without any loss of experiment and challenge. With her designs she shows better than anybody else what is going on in the Netherlands at the moment.
