The two companies are challenging pupils and students of the faculties product design, architecture, interior design art as well as wood technology and processing worldwide to submit new ideas and concepts for tomorrow’s furniture solutions in the re-organized competition.
In keeping with the motto "Take furniture to the next level", the participants are asked to let their imagination run wild, think outside the box and to design future-oriented, innovative and extraordinary furniture solutions for kitchens, offices, living rooms and bedrooms. The design drafts are supposed to be capable of achieving primarily one thing by means of their design as well as their technical intelligence: to ease the future area of conflict in living and working spaces.
Since the first International Design Award was held in 1997, this design competition has had a total of 6,700 registrations from more than 60 countries.
Three winners will be selected by an independent, international jury consisting of renowned design experts and rewarded with 2,000 Euro each and a trip to Germany lasting several days for their achievement. In addition to this, Hettich and REHAU will award a company prize – a design workshop with employees from both companies.
