SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AT AN EDITION PROMOTED WITH THE WDO
Andreu World and the World Design Organization (WDO) have joined forces to promote this edition of the Andreu World International Design Contest, based on the sustainable design of a chair and/or a table and intended for both young students and professionals of the sector, with no age limit.
The first prize of the Andreu World International Design Contest, with a reward of €6,000, was granted to David Guilmain and Rafa Peris, of Valencia, for MT Chair. Second place, rewarded with €2,500, went to Georg Siegele, of Landeck (Austria) and his chair, Pet, and the three special mentions of €1,000 each were for Berliner Pascal Hien for his design Tobio, American Geoffrey Adams for Cholla Rocker, and Carmen Barragán of Madrid for Hiya.
“It has been a source of pride for Andreu World to promote together with the WDO one of the first events of the design capital year. This important occurrence, which is a tremendous challenge, must be the starting point of a new era for the design, culture and economy of the whole Valencian region,” affirmed Jesús Llinares, CEO of Andreu World. “We hope it will serve as a dynamizing factor for professionals, companies, schools, students and society in general. World Design Capital Valencia 2022 is a joint project that goes beyond Valencia and the year 2022.”
