Ron Arad and Jasper Morrison have both scooped the first Perrier-Jouët Selfridges Design Prize.

They were awarded the prize “for representing design excellence at two extremes in their design practices and thinking”, according to a spokeswoman for the award scheme.

The panel, led by Royal College of Art rector Sir Christopher Frayling, says Arad is “visionary, avant-garde and a great experimentor”. Morrison “excels in economy, modesty and simplicity”, adds the spokeswoman.

The five shortlisted candidates, including Tom Dixon, Dunne & Raby and Marc Newson, created installations for display in department store Selfridges’ windows, unveiled on 8 February.
