Nature Insideis the theme of the international outdoor design competition for young talents (under 35). Organized by SUN, the international outdoor furnishings fair, in collaboration with CarusoDangeliStudio, Sun.Lab reaches its 5th edition in 2012. Nature Inside attempts to stimulate a process of fertilization, cultivation and crossing of design and the disciplines of ecological orientation. This activity of “translation” offers an opportunity to think about the relationship between nature and artifice. The goal is to create outdoor furnishings and accessories, permanent or temporary, public (hotels, beaches, parks, streets, shopping centers, etc) or private (gardens, balconies, terraces, etc) that include nature (vegetable, mineral, animal) or are inspired by it in the various phases of product life: from the idea to the production process to the utilization. The artifact whould thus be aesthetically or functionally based on a natural element or principle, or it should contain, in its structure and its functional deployment, a natural element. The selected prototypes will be given exhibition space at the 30th edition of the Sun Fair(Rimini Fiera, 11-13 October 2012) in the exhibition Sun.Lab: For a Creative Outdoor(sic), in close contact with sector manufacturers. They will also be featured in the institutional and publishing communications of the fair. www.sungiosun.it.
