Digger by Samuel Shoham received 89 out of 339 votes and thus won the public prize of the unique youngstar 2017 contest. The jury was also impressed: “Digger is almost a form of anti-design. It is about the reusability of waste or already used things. It has several functions in one and encourages today’s consumer world to reflect.”
