The AW Design Contest …


Closing on 1 December 2014, the Andreu World International Design Contest is a hub of new design talent, a place where emerging and established designers meet on an even playing field for top international design honours.

It’s an annual, international affair and the judging panel consists of successful journalists, designers and architects in the industry and the winner have their work form part of the AW production catalogue for international distribution!  Basically, it’s a pretty big deal.  The ability for a leading international furniture manufacturer to promote and distribute your work is most certainly nothing to sneeze at!

More info can be found here, and watch the video below.  We want to see some Aussie submissions so get pens to paper!

After visiting expert manufacturers and friends Andreu World at Salone Milano, we picked up a flyer promoting the 2014 edition of their famed design competition.

For new visitors to the KE-ZU Blog, the AW Design Competition is an annual, international affair, the judging panel invariably consists of industry movers and shakers and the winner receives the chance to have their work form part of the AW production catalogue (including the international promotion that goes with it!). If you’ve checked the currency conversion, the €3,000 prize money won’t hurt either!

It seems only yesterday that we were encouraging our Australian readers to share with us their ideas and contributions to AW’s 2013 competition, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun.

All the information can be found at AW’s website here, including images of past winners and accolade recipients. We would highly encourage our local readers to enter, we’d love to see your contributions!

#mytria114 Competition! …

Tria is a shelving system offered from Spanish manufacturer m114 (previously known as Mobles114).   The Tria system designed by Eduard Juanola over thirty years ago,  is still in production today and remains a versatile storage solution.

The original Tria design

Adaptable to any kind of space, be it a living room, kitchen, dressing room, home office or library, Tria’s compliant and modular design lends itself to many compositions, adapting itself to provide new solutions dependant on the requirements of its needs.   In the many years since its inception into the market, Triaexpanded its collection to include a diverse range of accessories: containers, boxes, tables, angled shelves and hangers to solidify it as a truly versatile and useful collection.

The New Tria features new materials, components and sizing.

The New Tria features new materials, components and sizing. The New Tria includes a “Tria Pack” – single wall-mounted piece

Since, m114 has launched The New Tria, a system reimagining the original Tria with the help of JM Massana – JM Tremoleda introducing new shapes and utilizing new materials that meet strict European standards of Ecodesign.   The New Tria, whilst paying homage to the original classic design, catapults the innovative storage system into the new millennium.

Recently, m114 launched the Show Us Your Tria competition.  The Spaniards are collecting images from around the globe through their FacebookTwitter and Instagram accounts of how Tria looks at your home or office and will be choosing their favourite three to receive prizes!

If you’ve got a Tria, or are looking into purchasing one now would be your time to get cameras at the ready and #mytria114!

3,000 Euros, together with some serious bragging notes.  Let us not forget a furniture piece with the possible inclusion in the production repertoire of Andreu World, a company holding vast tradition which expertly exports from Europe to five continents with an impeccable international brand presence.

and the winner is…!

Back in April we supported InDesignLive with a very desirable incentive for readers to complete their online survey.

We had a look around and consulted staff who indicated we should offer up one of our favourite designers’ pieces: a Jaime Hayon Showtime Vase from bd Barcelona.  Hayon’s identifiable and now iconic collection from bd Barcelona included these ceramic pieces in his classic style of fun – and for her efforts in completing the IndesignLive Survey, Lucinda Richardson is taking one home.

Lucinda was pretty happy with the win – the only other thing that she’d won was “a dodgy shirt from a radio a few weeks ago!”.

Well done Lucinda!
