Istituto Marangoni and Cappellini launched SIT DOWN!, an international design contest for young designers from all over the world

Italian and international designers will have the opportunity to express their creativity: Istituto Marangoni and Cappellini launched a call for ideas for product design, industrial design, interior design or architecture graduates and for design professionals with relevant experience in the field.

SIT DOWN! invites all participants to propose a new and contemporary type of seat marked by formal innovation, functionality and comfort and able to combine the Oriental tradition – based on the use of rolled carpets and cushions to sit down and relax – with the Western one. By 19th June 2015 designers will have to sign up and upload their projects on the “80 chance to be the one” Istituto Marangoni platform. All the works will be judged by a prestigious jury composed by famous Italian and International designers as well as representatives of Istituto Marangoni: Giulio Cappellini, Architect, Designer and Art Director of Cappellini; Piero Lissoni, Architect and Designer; Silvana Annichiarico, Director of the Triennale Design Museum; Emanuele Farneti, Director of AD; Sam Baron, Designer and Director of Design Fabrica, Massimo Zanatta – School Director of Istituto Marangoni School of Design; Cristina Morozzi – Director of Education of Istituto Marangoni School of Design. The jury will determine the winner, who will be awarded a scholarship offered by Cappellini to attend the Master in Italian Product Design starting in October 2015 at Istituto Marangoni School of Design in Milan. A not-to-be-missed opportunity, a challenging training experience at Istituto Marangoni School of Design located in via Cerva, in an area of the city centre that hosts the most well-known national and international design signatures. The SIT DOWN! contest is part of a wider set of events aimed at celebrating talent, thanks to which Istituto Marangoni  - which will celebrate its 80th anniversary this year -  will grant as many scholarships to give young International talents the chance to make their dreams come true and be trained in a program of excellence.
