The Porada International Design Award focuses on the bed

Creativity takes into account the use of solid wood and the brand’s heritage: the Porada International Design Award 2024 asks design professionals and students to devise innovative concepts on different types of beds. The call was launched on March 21st and is online on the new website dedicated to the contest.

In the twelfth edition, projects can combine natural or lacquered essences with fabrics, metals and other materials in order to offer original and unpublished solutions. They should enhance the use of production technologies, woodworking processes and typical finishing. In addition to stylistic value, proposals must comply with specific functionality, safety standards as well as ergonomic, environmental and sustainable design requirements.

Porada's international competition: jury and prizes

The deadline to submit the projects is January 31st 2025. The jury is made up of representatives from Porada, POLI.design, and ADI – Associazione per il Disegno Industriale, as well as five representatives from the design and publishing professions in the sector.

The evaluation will take into account originality, the level of innovation and research of new design solutions referred to the typical solid wood processing, the experimentation on materials and surface finishes, the ability of the projects to define and anticipate scenarios of use and innovative concepts in the use of wood furniture and contemporary furnishing accessories.

The total prize money of € 11,000.00 will be allocated as follows.
