Following the first successful edition, with more than 200 entries received from 25 countries around the world, Mirage, a leading company in the production of Made in Italy porcelain stoneware tiles, launches the new edition of the “RESTILE” contest (www.miragecontest.com/restile ), a competition designed to find new interpretations of ceramics, no longer based on style trends but characterised by an alternative approach to re-define the future of ceramic flooring.
The contest is targeted at planners, designers and creative minds in general who will offer their personal interpretation of ceramic tiles with an original design proposal. The “RESTILE” contest was conceived with the idea of creating an innovative product in terms of material and look, giving everybody who is ready to take on the challenge the chance to express their creativity in a personal and original way.
Following registration on www.miragecontest.com/restile , it will be possible to submit entries in digital format, by no later than March 1, 2015.
The three most deserving projects will be chosen according to the criteria of creativity, feasibility, compliance with the contest’s goals and innovation by a jury made up of members of the board of the company and international professional figures:
_Prof. Arch. Arturo Dell’Acqua Bellavitis: President of the “Fondazione Museo del Design” at the Triennale in Milan and Headmaster at the Design School at the “Politecnico” in Milan;
