ReDesign your future
After the success of the previous editions, Legno Lab announces the fourth competition "Redesign your future - Build your future" dedicated to those who want to test themselves and get their hands dirty by learning the techniques of artisanal production. The competition is inspired by our philosophy of doing and is designed for designers who are interested in approaching the world of self-production with a practical approach, ready to collaborate actively in the production phase and open to learning the methods and techniques of construction. With the competition we want to support the winning designers at all stages from the production of the prototype and the collaboration with the artisans, to the exhibition of the finished product in industry events up to the online marketing.
The fourth edition of the contest, Switch the wood ON, is dedicated to the design of a lamp. The project must provide the wood as the main material (but not exclusive) and must enhance the craftsmanship process.
