Entries are wanted for an international furniture design competition that will run ahead of next summer’s Olympic games in Japan.
The 11th International Furniture Design Fair (IFDA) in Asahikawa will explore the future of furniture design, particularly those crafted from wood.
It includes the design competition, which can be entered here up to the end of October.
There are cash prizes for the winners – and the winners and finalists will be exhibited at the fair in the Asahikawa Design Center in June 2020.
Organisers said entries should focus on wooden furniture, although work that is combined with other materials is acceptable.
The need to make use of limited resources and be innovative is a theme of the exhibition and competition.
Entries will be narrowed down to a final 25 for a panel of international judges to scrutinize, including UK product designer Michael Young.
