The Festival of Wood invites open applications to the International Contest (Primal)Chair as tribute to primal forest of Kočevje. The idea is to create functional and ergonomical chair that will spread awarness about human co-existence with the nature.
Wood is the only natural source that we have in abundance but we dont use it enough. In this way we want to promote the use of wooden materials in everyday life and encourage sustainable, economical and quality use of the wood.
Purpose of the contest is not only to design but to bring the story to the final product that is made with modern tools and ready for wider distribution.
Three wining designs by jury choice will be awarded with manufacture of the prototype that will be promoted in the time of festival and shown in media. With this prototype the designer will get a chance for a next step, that is a chance for actual marketing placement.
