The B-Side 2.0: International Design Contest now is over!
The B-Side 2.0: International Design Contest: Persiceto Marmi an Italian marble processing enterprise in cooperation with Bologna’s Architects Professional Association, has recently opened the call for entries for its international design competition dedicated to stone recycling.
Design competition B-Side 2.0 is open to every creative mind that wants to confront with the issue of (stone manufacturing leftovers) recycling and smart use of resources, for both individual or team projects.
The objective of The B-Side 2.0 competition is to investigate the possibility of producing items of furniture through the scraps of workmanship and materials that remain unused for a long time, which constitute a cost factor both for Persiceto Marmi and the community.
The type of material is very broad because it can be used all natural stones that are part of the normal supplies of a company that performs this type of work. For this reason it is not possible to provide an exhaustive list of types of stone, as well as all the working methods and the available treatments. As an illustrative, yet incomplete example, the most frequent scraps are in granite, marble, onyx, travertine, sandstone.
Entries can be submitted in the following two categories:
- Outdoor – furniture for private and/or public spaces – as seats, tables, bins etc – that considers the use of bigger scraps
- Kitchen – complements and/or objects made with smaller scraps
All contest entries will be published on The B-Side 2.0 official website and the Bologna’s Architects Professional Association website.
There is no entry fee for this design competition!
