The Lombardy Region– General Office of Commerce, Tourism and Services – has launched the 3rd edition of the competition Decò Ter with the support of Cestec, the in-house  Lombardy Region agency that has operated for over 30 years to stimulate competitive advantage for the Lombard production system, spreading the culture of innovation, supporting excellence in innovative sectors and opening up channels of internationalization. Decò Ter is aimed at young designers and Lombard companies that apply design as a primary means of accomplishing innovation and competing on the worldwide market. In particular, the competition sets out to gather and select design ideas in four theme areas: urban furnishings for shopping districts; furnishings for shops, public services and tourism structures; food & beverage packaging; lighting and signage for public spaces. All the companies with their designers will be guaranteed a place in an event of the FuoriSalone in 2013, to display prototypes that will also be promoted in a special catalogue, in collaboration with the media partner Interni.
