Tomasella is looking for a new collection of doors, both sliding and hinged doors, to be destined to a series of wardrobe systems already available in their catalogue; the door, its elements (ex. handle, glass, etc.) and the resulting aesthetics of their composition will greatly characterise the wardrobe system and shall thus have a minimal style, in line with the brand, showing great attention to details.


For the correct realisation of your proposals, keep into consideration the following guidelines:

Product typology: the collection you propose shall include two door typologies, sliding doors (to be presented in two length variants, see Size paragraph) and hinged doors (to be presented in three length variants, see Size paragraph), that differ in the way the user can open the wardrobe.
In particular, in the sliding doors version the user will move the doors along two parallel tracks – accordingly, when the wardrobe is open the two doors will be appear stacked.
In the hinged doors version, to be presented with two-leaf doors, the user will use a handle/integrated handle or other element to open the doors fixed on the wardrobe structure through their hinges.

Style: your collection of doors shall have a modern style, with a special care to details and materials.
The single components shall have a very refined design and be aimed at the creation of a visual composition, resulting in the overall aesthetics of the wardrobe system, main objective of the contest.
You may customise your composable wardrobe system through the juxtaposition of different doors, different finishes, decorations, geometric elements, etc.

The aesthetics of the doors shall be able to meet the taste and the requests of a heterogeneous and cosmopolitan public, while complying with the brand style and with the products available in its catalogue.

Awards:- 1°: €4000
The selection of the winner by Tomasella will be the result of an unquestionable evaluation and it will take into account originality, feasibility and consistency with the brief presented.

Deadline:- 26-05-2020
