Less Than One Week Left To Enter The Italian Way Design Award That Will Take Place In Dubai
Regional creatives, take note. The third iteration of The Italian Way Design Award is soon to take place in Dubai and it’s time to make your entries. The idea behind the initiative is to urge designers to create an original and functional piece of furniture, which is inspired by Italian traditions and design sensibilities. The brief? To design a product that can be used in a rooftop hospitality setting and enhances the viewers’ visual experience.
Running in partnership with architect Andrea Morgante and design mavens WOOD-SKIN, the competition will offer the winner a cash prize worth $5,000 and the chance to do a full-scale prototype of the design. Commercial viability and creativity are among the criteria for you to bag the top honor. You’ll be judged on a three-pronged basis; aesthetics, rooftop hospitality and innovation.
Applicants can be of any nationality but must be residents of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and must be aged 21 or over. Entrants will need to present 3D visuals and a write-up of 500 words to describe their concept design. All entries must be made no later than 12pm GST on 27 October. The five shortlisted entries will be installed at Molecule, d3, Dubai from 4 November, and the winners will be announced on 12 November at an exclusive, invitation-only awards event at Molecule, d3.
