The Aldo Morelato Foundation launches the thirteenth edition of the International Competition “Significant Furniture”, with the theme “Convivial spaces – Furniture elements for public spaces” The great attention that design has dedicated to the home spaces, by designing tools and solutions to improve them, is now concentrating upon places where in fact “collective” activities take place, which include hotels and public places, offices and restaurants.
The new edition of the Significant Furniture Competition will be biennial. The Aldo Morelato Foundation under the guidance of the artistic director, the famous architect Ugo La Pietra has in fact decided to extend the period in order to better plan the activities related to the competition and give more time to the participants to present their projects. The deadline for submission of entries is fixed for 5th May 2017. The Aldo Morelato Foundation, always active promoter of “artfully made” furniture suggests participants to enhance in their projects the woodworking aspect. The Morelato Company will produce a prototype of the first prize project, which will become part of the permanent collection of the MAAM (Museum of Applied Art in the Furntiure field) of the Foundation.
