The winner of the first ever Mobilia NEXT design contest, in collaboration with Index-Design, was announced on January 18th at the Interior Design Show (IDS) in Toronto. Accompanied by Mobilia‘s president, Johannes Kau, the winning designer received a 5,000$ prize and will see his project distributed in stores and online.
Because we believe in emerging talent, we have decided to call upon the next generation of Canadians to add their creative touch to our collections and see their ideas produced and distributed in Mobilia stores.
It is with much enthusiasm that we launched, last May, the very first edition of the NEXT contest in collaboration with Index-Design (a Montreal agency whose mission is to connect interior design professionals). The contest offers the opportunity for designers with less than 5 years of professional experience to let their creativity shine by presenting new furniture designs.
Second installment in our Creative Directions series, Mobilia’s president, Johannes Kau talks about his adventures in India and the local artisans who are transforming reclaimed architectural elements into one-of-a-kind objects of beauty.
Standing as the first in a series of exercises, Creative Directions for MOBILIA is part of a creative venture which successively entrusts distinguished guests with the creative direction of projects.
