The concept behind the award is to give an opportunity for young designers to develop talent and skills under the best possible conditions. With diverse views on future design, an exciting cooperation between The National Workshops for Arts and Crafts, Normann Copenhagen and Link UP formed the foundation of Time to design new talent award in 2008.
The cooperation between the private and the public sector form a distinctive platform for the growing talent and facilitate room and space for challenging projects and ideas.
