Curacao will host a contest called: Living Designs where Art/Design students will come up with the next bedroom or living room for their Furniture Department. The main objective is to have contestants bring new and exclusive furniture designs with a fashionable touch for mass production.
“We will have several judges, who will focus on production costs, compliance with functionality and ergonomics,” said Joaquin Sticker – Curacao’s Vice President of Purchasing. Participants will be able to register at: http://www.icuracao.com/living-design before May 29th, 2015.
“All designs must be turned in no later than June 18th. This gives them a three week window to turn in their final designs to the judges,” said Arturo M. Cortez – Curacao’s Product Manager. The styles will vary from modern and practical to traditional and comfortable.
Judges will evaluate all the participants’ final work, and winners will be announced in June. The awards include first place $5000, second place $2000 and third place $1000.
“This is a great opportunity for the selected designers to create a merchandising book for Curacao. In addition these students will have the chance to arrange our sales floors with the current furniture and accessories giving it a new vibe. The new designs will be sent to our vendors to be manufactured”, said Arturo M. Cortez.
