After the success of SIT DOWN!, Istituto Marangoni and Cappellini are issuing a new challenge to young designers worldwide: Make It Odd (Take It Home), the international creative ideas contest which invites participants to come up with some unconventional furniture, showcasing innovation in form, material or function.
Graduates in product and industrial design, interior design or architecture, or sector professionals with relevant experience in the field will have until 23 May 2016 to register and send in their design proposal.
The projects will be judged by a team of outstanding Italian and international design professionals, such as Paola Navone, Architect and Designer; Ferruccio Laviani, Architect and Designer; Marco Sabetta, Central Director of External Relations for the Federlegno Arredo Group; Giulio Cappellini, Achitect, Designer and Art Director for Cappellini (and the Chairman of the Panel), as well as some of the school's directors: Massimo Zanatta, Director of the Istituto Marangoni School of Design, and Cristina Morozzi, Director of Education for the Istituto Marangoni School of Design. The panel will evaluate the projects based on consistency with the competition theme, innovation and the validity of the proposal, the quality of the composition and the capacity for concept's synthesis.
The creator of the first place project will receive a study bursary from Cappellini for a Masters in Italian Product & Furniture Design at the Istituto Marangoni School of Design in Milan, starting in October 2016. A great opportunity to embark upon a study experience and discover a way of life at the School of Design on Via Cerva, alongside students from all over the globe, in one of the world’s undisputed international design capitals.
