Ironic & Iconic

Istituto Marangoni - The School of Design & Zanotta design furniture brand are promoting an international call for ideas aimed at developing iconic design products into suitable, forward-looking objects for the emerging demands of contemporary users.

Relying on the expertise of some of Italy’s leading design masters, Zanotta has succeeded in interpreting the concept of living in a frisky, non-conventional way, yet never neglecting the traditional approach of Made in Italy craftsmanship. The challenge for candidates is now to take inspiration from the brand’s collection and company philosophy and design a new product or furniture element that reflects these values, with special emphasis on aesthetic consistency and looking to future trends as a way to gain fresh insight into the next languages in living.

The contest is open to graduates holding a University degree or equivalent study in product design or about to graduate by October 2019, as well as to professionals with relevant experience in the industry. The prize for the best project is a scholarship for the Product & Furniture Design Master’s Course starting in October 2019 at Istituto Marangoni in Milan.
