'Simplicity is an essential quality of good design. And it is one of the most complicated things in life, because you have to take away, take away...
It is the start from a precise executive and functional concept, and the designer should be able to explain over the phone why his object is designed in a certain way and how it ought to be made - so simple that it endows the object with a distinctive character.'
Combine simplicity with playfulness, elegance, freshness, and contemporary spirit in home and office furniture design.
We are looking for innovative chairs, tables, sofas, containers,...(lighting, coffee tables and other small accessories are not accepted). Please don't send in vague concepts, but go a step further. As DEPADOVA might wish to produce some of the most interesting projects, please consider the feasibility of manufacturing. The jury will award designs and concepts which are innovative in terms of their formal aspects as well as their functional ones.
