RADO YOUNG DESIGN PRIZE IN CHINA
The competition will result in the awarding of The Rado Young Design Prize, which will be given to two young talents - one student and one young professional - with the plan to offer a global platform. The Designed in China competition aims to present original works that express China’s creative potential. It is open to any professional designer or design student of Chinese nationality (including Hong Kong and Macau), who are currently based in Mainland China. The winning designs will be displayed at the Shanghai Exhibition Center from October 15 through 17, 2009. The competition will be juried by a distinguished panel comprised of Yves Béhar, chief designer and founder, Fuseproject; Giulio Cappellini; creative director, Cappellini; Rossana Hu and Lyndon Neri, co-founder, Design Republic and Neri & Hu; Jiang Li, professor, School of Design, Central Academy of Fine Arts; Alasdhair Willis, CEO, Established & Sons; and Shaway Yeh, editorial director, Modern Media Group.
“The Rado Young Design Prize is conceived with the future of design in mind,” says Mr. Roland Streule, President of Rado. “We seek to actively promote exceptional talent in the field of contemporary design and to contribute in various ways to the education of tomorrow’s talents. As a watch brand focused on design, we want to celebrate materials and shapes still to be invented.”
Rado has been dedicated to the world of contemporary design and arts for the last years. After Salone del Mobile, Dutch Design Awards, Vienna Design Week and Design Miami Art Basel, The Rado Young Design Prize in China will further demonstrate the brand’s on-going commitment to support and promote young and creative talents around the globe.
