Artzept 2010 – Zepter International Design Contest

Artzept 2010 gives the world’s most talented young designers well-deserved recognition, with prizes and publicity, and also provides them with opportunity to exhibit their work in luxurious Zepter shops throughout Europe, a dream for any young interior designer.

Just like its mighty sponsor Zepter International, Artzept is also dedicated to building the home of tomorrow, for the people of tomorrow. Zepter International accomplishes this goal by producing top-class domestic appliances that are designed to improve the health and environmental awareness of people today.

Objective

Submit a piece of your own work inspired by the 2010 theme: “FRUTTIERA”.

This involves an obligatory stemmed fruit dish for holding and displaying fruit.

  • Any bowls without a stem will not be considered. These should be unique pieces and signed by their creators.
  • Entries should be first and foremost functional, as well as artistic and aesthetically pleasing, and preferably progressive and environmentally aware.
  • No purely conceptual work will be considered for the exhibition.
  • Works in all techniques, glass, metal, plastic, ceramics, and composite materials will be considered.

Prizes

The 2010 Artzept winners shall receive:

  • 1st prize: €10,000
  • 2nd prize: €4,000 worth of Zepter products
  • 3rd prize: €3,000 worth of Zepter products

The Artzept 2010 award ceremony will take place in Milan, Italy in November 2010.

The participating designers will receive exposure through a travelling exhibition organised by Zepter International, which will visit the major cities around the world in 2010 – 2011 and will be featured in an exhibition catalogue.
