On 25 March 2013 in Milan, FSC Italy officially launched its second annual responsible design competition ‘The Forest in a Room’.
The theme of this year’s competition is domestic sociality. It aims to investigate the social and symbolic dimensions of aggregation in the domestic setting. Participants are invited to design chairs, tables, coffee tables, lighting systems or furnishing, created to facilitate moments of sharing and socializing together in our houses. The purpose of the competition is to encourage young designers to design and produce FSC certified wooden objects, drawing the attention of designers, industrial producers and consumers to the origin of raw wood.
The competition is open to two categories: professionals (up to 40 years old) and students. All nationalities are invited to participate, and the deadline for submitting the projects is 25 June 2013. The winners will have the opportunity to see a prototype of their project realized. The top three projects in each category will also be shown at an awards ceremony, to be held on 27 September 2013, where prizes will be presented to the winners.
