The Furniture Design Award (FDA) 2013 challenges designers to rethink their roles and contemplate issues that are affecting lives around the world today. In face of rising natural disasters, economic uncertainties and over-population issues, can furniture today be designed to go beyond its aesthetic functions and coexist with the current environment?
Participants for FDA 2013 are invited to select challenging areas within the current social, economic and environmental landscape, and create furniture pieces that can potentially bring about a radical change in furniture design trends.
