Wie in de tropische sfeer wil blijven, die neemt zeker deel aan deze wedstrijd ! "balance | crossing borders" is een internationale designwedstrijd waarin we samen met onze Cubaanse partners zoeken naar een gepaste (en brede) interpretatie van de schommelstoel. Hier vind je alvast de briefing:

The subject of this design competition refers to the famous rocking chair, one of the most common pieces of furniture in Cuban life. ‘Balance’ will be a re-interpretation of this traditional chair, representing the grace of the rocking motion. The result will evoke the interesting, ever-changing situation of Cuba in an abstract way. It will contribute to the collective idea by its form or shape, material or construction. 


The design should stand on its own, without the use of any other tool. 
The model must be documented with a technical drawing and a presentation in use (photoshop, sketch,…)
The model, just like the design itself, should be reproducible in Cuba.


Competition open for all students of ISDi, Interieur&Design Thomas More and Cujae.
Additional, for all designers graduated between 2010-2017 of these Universities or University College
The admittance is free.
You can apply individually or in group. You may submit only one entry per person or group.

Obligatory: Technical drawings on scale 1:6
                    Cut-out schemes or/and all necessary information to rebuild the model.
