Here's some more information from the competition organisers:


INTERIEUR 2010 Design Competition

The largest amount for prize money ever, thirty international media partners, as well as jury members who offer strong support for the theme – The New World – of the 22nd Design Biennale INTERIEUR 2010: these are the ingredients for a fascinating selection of brand new ideas.

In the run-up to the Design Biennale INTERIEUR 2010, the Interieur Foundation organises the 21st biennial competition for design ideas and prototypes. The focus of the INTERIEUR 2010 Design Competition – formerly known as the 'Design for Europe' competition – is about designing this year. The jury will look for fresh and new creative ideas but also for functionality, technology and manufacturing potential.

Theme

A globalised world, the internet age, the search for durability and innovative energy management are the new values which are being discussed globally. The Interieur Foundation has brought these themes together for the Design Biennale 2010 and the Design Competition, under the heading 'THE NEW WORLD'. It is a broad theme which allows professionals, designers and innovating minds to answer our call and to surprise the jury with materials, products and services which show the new reality of design.

The organisers and the members of the jury are therefore keenly looking forward to receiving the entries, which will all be on display at the 22nd Design Biennale INTERIEUR 2010. This provides and opportunity for manufacturers to make contact with the designers and together look at the design proposals with an eye on production and manufacturing. More than 50% of previous winners saw their product manufactured through the competition and contacts made during the Biennale.

The winners

Over 220 submissions from 27 different countries were filed for the 2010 edition of the Design Competition Interieur. A total of 12 projects were shortlisted for prizes. “A coherent collection of objects”, as the jury finally described them.

Winners of Interieur 2010 Design Competition

Above: American designer Max Lipsey received an honorable mention for his Acciaio furniture series.

They chose objects that are highly advanced and well thought through. Objects that, with a few aesthetic adjustments, are ready to conquer the market. Objects that are highly identifiable, but also break with tradition or complement it with a clever twist. Objects that need no explanation because they speak for themselves.
