Under the Private Sector Development Programme (PSD-P) funded by the European Union, Expertise France in Collaboration with the Association of Lebanese Industrialists and Innovation Factory, is Launching its Design Competition to support the Wood Processing Sector in Tripoli.
Four Categories of products have been identified: a living room inspired by Oscar Niemeyer, Reuse/Remade, Industrial and Classic Chic.
Each participant is free to choose the preferred category to work with. In each of these categories, the assignment includes a choice of 6 different products. The participants are to design a minimum of one product (from the list), but they can also choose to design more if their timeframe allows them to do so.
The competition will be accepting products’ sketches until June 30th, 2018.
Any sketch submitted before June 20th, 2018 will be exhibited during Beirut Design Week on June 23rd, 2018.
A panel of Juries will choose 12 sketches and Expertise France will support the cost of the raw material to manufacture the relative prototypes with artisans and craftsmen from Tripoli.
From the 12 prototypes, the Jury will then chose 5 winners who will be exhibited during the Beirut Design Fair from September 20th – 23rd, 2018.
The sketches should then be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in A3 format and portrait orientation.
