Trendsetting design plays a major role on the South American continent – and is in the focus of both national and international design competitions. The largest one of its kind is the 'Prêmio Salão Design' contest. The submission period for the 22nd contest started at the beginning of August. More than 12,000 designers including professional designers, design students and industrial representatives have participated in the contest since its start in 1988. What's new this year: For the first time, Interprint will be one of the sponsors of South America's most important Design Award. Furthermore, Salvatore Figliuzzi, Director of Marketing & Design at Interprint, was pleased to accept the organiser's invitation to participate in the contest as an active jury member.
Interprint has established itself as a promoter of trendsetting décor design not only in Europe but also on international markets. The company now also plays this role as a co-sponsor and jury member of the Prêmio Salão Design contest. In his capacity as jury member, Salvatore Figliuzzi will co-decide in January 2018 which products and designers will receive South America's most important Design Award. Interprint will also participate in the award ceremony within the scope of 'Movelsul Brasil', the Brazilian flagship furniture trade fair, which will take place in Bento Gonçalves in March next year.
Vision for Good Design
'Sindmóveis', the official association of the furniture industry in Bento Gonçalves, started the award and has been its organiser ever since. The organisers' primary objective is to inspire not only well-established designers but also young designer talents and manufacturing companies to create innovative designs – and consequently to revive the economic strength of the furniture industry. "The contest offers designers much scope for creativity and innovation – and we promote this dynamic process as a sponsor and jury member," explained Salvatore Figliuzzi from Interprint's design team. "At the same time, we want to strengthen the value of good design in South America and give the local furniture and derived timber product industries new ideas for décor design."
It will be interesting to see the results of the design contest. They will definitely be a part of Interprint's presentations at the 'Movelsul' and the 'High Design' trade fair in São Paulo.
