ReDesign Award 2013
Projects that encourage sustainability and promote a greener lifestyle are far too few and in between in our opinion, but that’s why when an event such as the ReDesign Award
pops up, we take notice. Open to designers and design student from all over the EU, this award competition calls for inventive products made from recyclables, and offers a financial prize, as well as an international exhibition and priceless exposure. The ReDesign Award 2013 will be given out in 4 categories: mobility and public space, household appliances, accessories, and finally fashion and jewellery. Applications close on the 31st of January.
FILED UNDER Project Presentation
is an ambitious project initiated by designer Annahita Kamali and photographer Florian Böhm, exploring the intersection between art, design and fashion. Involving various artists in the creation of unique pieces, the concept has also resulted in a collaboration with the German-Iranian author and journalist Jina Khayyer who contributed with a short story entitled Lust and Love. The author has meticulously drawn and stamped 9000 character to be transferred to a silk piece of cloth, creating a limited edition art piece to be revealed and read from by Khayyer herself during a special event at PARK
. Presented in a hand-bound box, this surely would make the best present ever!
