Collab will hold its Seventeenth Annual Student Design Competition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Monday, November 16, 2009.
This years competition will be held in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibition “Marcel Wanders: Designer” celebrating the innovative design work of the Dutch designer, the recipient of Collab’s 2009 Design Excellence Award.
THEME: Students are asked to consider the way Marcel Wanders examines history, innovative use of materials and technology in designing objects that connect to the human experience. To quote the designer’s motto, Wanders is “here to create an environment of love, life with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.”
Tabletop Luminaire: as a decorative object, there is a long history of forms and types, from candlesticks and candelabras to all manner of lights, lighting and light objects. As important as their functional aspects, students are asked to consider their function as a decorative object. A table top light can be a simple object, but also the focus of the human experience: illuminating a specific task, setting a mood, or even a religious or ceremonial purpose.
CHALLENGE: Student will design a tabletop luminaire investigating the concept of form and meaning of the luminaire. The design should demonstrate research into historical content of the object form by researching pre 20th century examples. Any materials and technology can be considered, and the piece must be reproducible in multiples or mass reproducible.
ELIGIBILITY: All submissions are due by 10 AM, November 16th, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Students are encouraged to attend the event and are expected to hand deliver their entries. No entries will be accepted by post. The Entrant waives all rights to entries, and the winners are at the full discretion of the Jury.
A full competition brief will be posted by June 1st on the Museum website at http://www.philamuseum.org/collab.
