Identify original concepts of interior design inspired by Chinese culture.
This is the challenge of Twin City – Civilization Redesign, the contest promoted by Architectural studio Guangzhou Yuan She Yi He Decorate Design Co. LTD and the 21st Guangzhou International Art Fair, with Itasia s.r.l., organized by POLI.design.

Participation is open to students of art and design schools, young designers and creative under 35, Italian or who are studying/working in Italy.

It’s just an ancient Chinese motto to sum up the spirit of the contest: “the onlookers see more than the players do”: through the vision and interpretation of Chinese culture by young Italian designers and creative talents, the promoters aim to encourage the new generation of Chinese designers to discover the importance of their own culture and to hand such heritage over to the designers of the future. A number of facets and peculiar characteristics of this ancient culture, in fact, have been ignored, and have consequently disappeared or never emerged because of the recent sudden boom in Chinese economy.

Working individually or in groups, participants experiment with three different Categories of Project inspired by Chinese culture:
A. Home space;
B. Decor;
C. Work of art.

Participants in Categories A and B of the Competition had until October 17, 2016 to send their application and their project, that should in any case be new and developed specifically for the contest. Specifically, projects must be feasible and suitable for prototyping, to comply with the second phase: the promoters of the competition, with the support of the participants, will proceed to the realization of prototypes of the selected projects, which will be shown at the 21st Guangzhou International Art Fair, scheduled for December 2 to 5, 2016 in the city of Guangzhou (China).
Had until November 3, 2016 to independently carry out and present their work of art, those who choose to compete for the Category C of the competition.

It’s up to a Jury of experts, consisting of academics and professionals, to find the proposals that will be distinguished by consistency, integration of values, aesthetic quality and feasibility of the project.
Among the members of the Jury: Matteo O. Ingaramo, Director of POLI.design, Architect Enrico de Benedetti, Designer Davide Groppi, Interior Designer Jason Ma (Taiwan) and Zeng Zhen Wei (Cina), Professor of Art and Design.
