The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium, in collaboration with Oliviero Toscani Studio, organises the second edition of the international design contest Pelle+ calling for new planning proposals of products for different uses made of vegetable-tanned leather. It can be used alone or in combination with any other materialfreely proposed by the competitors.
The contemporary references realised by famopus architects, designers, artists and produced by important brand companies are numerous. We are longing for unique, surprising, innovative projects for a new versatility of leather, a vegetable-tanned leather that absorbs the traces of our life, gets old, but is always contemporary.
All projects submitted will be evaluated by a panel of judges chaired by Oliviero Toscani and the consortium’s president Simone Remi and composed by world-known personalities in the field of design, architecture, contemporary art, fashion and communication: Gilda Bojardi, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Elio Fiorucci, Jaime Hayon, Toshiyuki Kita, Alessandro Mendini, Marc Newson.
The Jury will select and award the most deserving projects during an award ceremony held in Milan during the Milan Fashion Week next September 2011.
We invite architects, artists, designers, creative artisans to passionately participate to this international design contest. Request modules can be found here by May 30th., 2011. Info at firstname.lastname@example.org
