Double Track Design Contest

El objetivo es construir un atlas dedicado al diseño anónimo de los países de Europa Central y Oriental. Para ello, en el concurso de este año, se les pide a los participantes que identifiquen un objeto de la memoria colectiva que muestre habilidades de diseño y que sea significativo. El concurso está abierto a diseñadores nacidos en los Estados miembros de la CEI (Albania, Austria, Belarús, Bosnia y Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croacia, República Checa, Hungría, Italia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Polonia, Rumania, Serbia, Eslovaquia, Eslovenia y Ucrania), así como Estonia, Alemania, Letonia, Lituania y Turquía.

The aim is to build a large memory atlas dedicated to the anonymous design of the countries of Central Eastern Europe, therefore in this year’s competition, participants are asked to identify an object from the collective memory, which demonstrates design skill, it can be simple or complex as long as it is meaningful.

The object could be a household tool or alternatively professional equipment or small objects for building. Once the participants have singled out their object they must photograph it on a white backdrop, outline in writing a brief history, comment on the motivations behind the choice and then proceed onto a reuse and redefinition project, which could take shape in a ready-made project or simply a change of function.Participation in the competition is free of charge.
