This is why furniture needs an update. The “International Design Award 2018“ is seeking innovative solutions for the living room, kitchen, bedroom and workplace, for hotels or shops. This is the students' brief: “Discover new design worlds, create additional storage space, provide convenient, user-friendly functions, make change the underlying principle.“ The award focus is being placed on ideas for furniture that can do more and excite with solutions that impress. The organisers are wanting to find unconventional thinkers and planners for the consumers of tomorrow.
