In this first edition over 120 design proposals were received from all around the world. The jury, comprising Sofia Steffenoni and Simona Auteri, founders of Matter Of Stuff, Sebastian Bergne, designer and visiting professor, Edoardo Milesi of OCRA and Archos, Giovanni
Cutolo, ex-president of Fondazione ADI Collezione Compasso d’Oro and representatives from partner manufacturing companies, selected the winning projects based on their commitment to innovation, technology, design and creativity.
The six winners of the competition developed their projects in collaboration with the two manufacturing companies Toscari (metal) and Carrara Design Factory (marble) during a month in residence from 18 April to 14 May 2016.
The exhibition in Montalcino will be open to the public from July 14 until 30 November 2016.
