The 2019 International Design Contest starts its journey with new features. This year we wanted to make the 19th edition even more special, raising new challenges and with the special collaboration of Kvadrat.
The purpose is to open more possibilities to the contestants, introducing new materials such as Kvadrat textiles and upholstery or Solid Board by Really material, in search of innovative, sustainable and versatile seating and table designs.
This year, the contest briefing includes the following conditions for seating and table designs:
•For seating, the main material shall be wood and upholstery. Beech, ash, oak, or walnut should be the wood species utilized, in either solid or plywood version. The Kvadrat textile collections should be used for upholstered pieces. The use of other materials such as metal, thermopolymer, and aluminum will also be accepted.
•For tables, the principal material shall be “Solid Textile Board by Really” – a high-density material manufactured from Kvadrat textiles at the end of their life-cycle. The use of other materials such as wood, plywood, laminate, glass, metal, thermopolymer, and natural stones will be accepted.
You can check the Kvadrat collections through its website and the existing "Solid Textile Board by Really" finishes in this link. In addition, you can request samples of these materials through the email [email protected] indicating the color and collection you need for your model.
