The Georg Jensen Prize 1996, the jury's statement:

"The interior decorator and furniture designer Gunilla Allard has been awarded this year's Georg Jensen Prize for her strict, minimalistic and elegant design. The proportions and details of her furniture reveal a genuine sense of quality".

 

The Excellent Swedish Form Design Prize 2000 for chair "Cosmos" for Lammhults, the jury's statement:

"One of this year's Design Prizes is awarded to Cosmos - an elegant and lightweight stackable and linkable chair. Well-designed and with a minimal use of materials, it has a low-key but still distinct look. The wide variety of upholstery fabric gives a lot of choice; the back upholstered with double netting upholstery creates an exciting moiré effect. The chair was designed and produced for the library in Linköping, but is now in the company's general collection. A chair that will certainly stand being looked at for many years to come."
