Eighth edition of the prize

Gruppo Cosentino announces the eighth edition of the Cosentino Design Challenge. Projects can be submitted starting on 28 February until 1 June 2014, in digital form, at the website: www.cosentinodesignchallenge.org. Cosentino Design Challenge is for students currently enrolled for the school year 2013-2014 in any international advanced training program in design, architecture, interior design or related areas. For this edition, participants in the Design category are asked to focus on the theme “Cosentino and art”: freedom of choice of typologies or worksurfaces, but always with a focus on the relationship between art, space, vantage point and Cosentino products. In the Architecture category the work involves selecting a historical or emblematic building and changing its function, paying attention to its exterior image. In both cases, the goal is to encourage talented students, promoting research on different conceptual approaches to the configuration of spaces, the construction of materials and systems that define spaces, using the wide range of Cosentino products for the creation of the final projects.
