The six finalists of Cardato Contest have been selected: new features include a sports outfit and a fabric chandelier
Amazing new uses of cardato have been invented by young designers participating in the second edition of the Made in Cardato Contest. It was not easy for the team of the Museo del Tessuto to select the finalists, three for the fashion section and three for design. The quality of the projects presented was very high this year, and included a futuristic fabric lamp, a rug with a special support and a knitted chair. The fashion proposals were interesting and out of the ordinary: a sports outfit for biking and a series of coats inspired by penguins. In short, the proposals showed real creativity, which must now be translated into prototypes. It is exactly this which attracted participants to the contest: the possibility to implement their own projects, because in the end the winner of the prize money of €2,500 (one for each section) will be evaluated by the jury on the basis of the product produced and not on the project.read more
