30 nov 2014

Deadline: before 12 midnight, Saturday 30 November 2014.

Van Cleef & Arpels and Tashkeel in partnership with Design Days Dubai are calling to emerging designers from the region to submit proposals of works in product design. Submitted proposals could take the form of conceptual or functional pieces of design - for example, furniture, objects, or projects - in response to materials of the designer's choice.

Please note that submissions should not be in the form of jewelry pieces and/or watches. The call is only open to previously unrealized projects; applicants should submit digital files (photos of maquettes, renderings and/or sketches) of the proposed work.

Designed to support and nurture emerging talent across the Middle East, the winner of the prize will receive a production budget of AED 30,000 to produce the work, plus a traveling allowance of AED 5,000 to attend Design Days Dubai 2015. The final piece will be unveiled on the opening day of Design Days Dubai 2015. The winner will also be awarded with a week long trip to Paris to attend courses led by the Mains d'OrTM, master craftsmen in high jewelry creation, at the exclusive L'ECOLE Van Cleef & Arpels.

Application forms and images must be submitted not later than 12 midnight on Saturday 30 November 2014.
