Infiniti this year is looking for an eco-friendly product that can help to increase the level of the products introduced in the last editions. Thanks to the Contest, we have had the opportunity to discover new talents and interesting projects, which have been later translated into products of our Collection.
We like the idea of many young designers, from all around the world, working on a forward-thinking project with the intent to create a useful, functional and sustainable product. We love thinking about many minds all focused on a common idea, an idea of clever design with silent quality.
Jury members: Stefano Boeri (president), Gilda Bojardi, Timothy O’Connell, Marco Ceccato.
The theme of “sustainability” has become increasingly important, not only in industrial production, but also in everyday life. Through its own culture of design Infiniti is launching a challenge: the design of a couple of products made entirely from wood, eco-sustainable and 100% recyclable. chair + stool or armchair + table. Projects must minimise or possibly eliminate the use of alternative elements such as metalware, accessories or screws, and must minimise the waste of materials as well as space. The Contest aims to focus on objects which are not only recyclable, but which can also be optimised in terms of volume when disassembled, to minimise shipment bulk.
The competition is open to all young designers, creative professionals and students from Italy and abroad, born after 01/01/1982. Each participant can submit more than one project. Group participation is also permitted, in which case a spokesperson must be identified. In order to participate in the competition, you must accept this call for applications and the free transfer of reproduction and publication rights of submitted projects, for the purposes of the competition.
Deadline is 31st July 2017.
