The DOEN I Materiaalprijs 2009 (DOEN I Materials Prize), jointly organized by the Materiaalfonds and Stichting DOEN, seeks to promote sustainable design and the innovative use of materials in the visual art and design disciplines. It challenges fine artists and designers to come up with sustainable design projects that combine innovative materials with stylishness, beauty and functionality. High quality and cutting-edge materials, recycling and upcycling, sustainable design, ecodesign, cradle to cradle and biomimicry can all help to create a better environment. The DOEN I Materiaalprijs is not restricted to a single discipline; it welcomes and encourages all design solutions that explore new, sustainable materials and techniques that reflect today’s world, and which are inspirational and viable.
Two prizes will be awarded:
A prize of â‚¬ 15.000,- for an (almost) finished product and an incentive prize of â‚¬ 5.000,- for an idea that has not yet been put into production. The fifteen best submissions will be presented during Dutch Design Week 2009 from 17 to25 October 2009 Eindhoven. The jury will announce the winners during the Dutch Design Week.
The closing date for entries is 7 September 2009.
Competition rules and criteria are given on the entry form which can be found on www.doen-materiaalprijs.nl.
