Description
Fritz Becker KG is one of the world's leading moulded-wood manufacturers. Our customers mainly operate in the furniture industry.
As part of its 75th anniversary celebration, Fritz Becker KG is holding the BeckerContest 2011.
It aims to promote and encourage young designers around the world.

We would like to give young designers the opportunity to present their ideas for moulded wood in an international competition.
Ten award-winning prototypes will be presented to international professionals at the 2011 Interzum exhibition in Cologne. All submissions will be recorded in a publication.
