The Rossana Orlandi Srl is launching and promoting the first edition of the contest Ro Plastic Prize. This contest’s main goal aims to be a challenge for young designers to find new ways to transform, re-design and re-use plastic in the creation of new concepts in five categories.
This contest is open to every designer regardless of their background, experience or age. The intention of this challenge is to find a way around the problem of plastic production and promote the next generation of design. Seen as plastic trash is currently one of the biggest resources available this initiative aims to help in giving new uses to plastic.
The contest will be divided into five different categories: Design, Home Textiles, Packaging Solutions, and Conscious Innovation Projects. The first category is about how plastic can be introduced in a person’s daily life (home and outdoors); the second challenges designers to create new synthetic recycled textiles (without any hazards to people); the third category aims to create new and reusable packaging solutions for everyday situations; lastly the fourth category just searches for innovative ideas “out of the box”.
Young designers who are interested in joining this challenge may apply with their prototypes until March 10th of this year. The projects which are considered the best will be presented at Galleria Rossana Orlandi during the Fuorisalone of the 2019 Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.
