DESIGN CONTEST 2018

Call for projects : start mining your nostalgic memories!
For its second edition Beirut Design Fair invites students to get creative.

Enzo Mari says that the designer is the guardian of a collective knowledge and that the project often “involves the slight adjustment of details, because the structural functionality of objects has been regulated by ancient use.”
This challenge aims to go back to the past, and think about old objects we forgot about.
Most of the times, designers search for the “Next Big Thing”, but what if we look to the last little thing? And maybe the thing before that?

Every product should tell a story coming from the past, revisited, and reintroduced in our daily and modern lives!

The 7 best projects will be exhibited during Beirut Design Fair.


The 1st prize will be announced on the 20th of September 2018, and will get the chance to see his product come to life.
The prototype will be featured in 2019 as part of “Spot On”, dedicated for emerging designers.

Deadline: 1st of June 2018
