SUN.LAB is a free space for research and experimentation organized by SUN to promote the emerging of new proposals, innovative designs, and new ways to conceive life in the open. SUN.LAB 2009 will host to the best suggestions of Italian and foreign designers under 35 and of students of the main European universities, capable to create experimental scenarios, brand new concepts, and top-level designs that are not yet being manufactured.
An overview of prototypes expressing the growing wish to rediscover the pleasure of using open spaces, a renewed approach to nature, a strong desire to take control of one’s free time.
The competition is aimed at creating a display of product prototypes and concepts conceived by young designers for the outdoor world. An event that is meant as a link between creative talents and the sector’s companies.

The subject
The subject selected for this edition is the domestic garden, meant as a space to relax, focus on one’s well-being, organize shared activities, and indulge in one’s hobbies.
A space that is not only identified with a private and limited place, but is transferred into the revival of living en plein air in cities, in view of taking control of public, urban and non-urban spaces.
The domestic garden subject is intended to stimulate original designs, brand new experiments on forms and materials to create products strictly tied to the relation with nature and to the quality of the time spent in contact with it, both outdoor and indoor, according to current trends that see a merger of the inside with the outside.
Selections will thus focus on projects mainly conceived for private locations (balconies, attics, terraces, gardens, déhors, home greenhouses), spaces dedicated to reception, and public locations.
