(PRIMAL)CHAIR

5th International design contest

 The Festival of Wood invites open applications to the 5th Industrial Design Competition.

We look for: Functional, modern wooden piece

»Most of us imagine forest as an oasis of peace and relaxation. A sound of rustling leaves, birds singing, pleasant forest scents relax and calm us. The question is whether a carefully designed piece of nature in the form of wood can create a feeling of homeliness and connection with nature?”  
-- prof. dr. Jasna Hrovatin, from text Relaxation in harmony with nature

So far 54 authors have participated at the international design contest (Primal) chair. They come from Slovenia, France, Serbia, Ukraine, Mexico, Italy, Croatia, Sweden and Ireland. Fourteen prototypes are the result of the past four contests. In the year 2017 the three awarded prototypes were promoted within the 25th Bienale of design (BIO 25) in Ljubljana.
