Rado Star Prize

  • Inspired winners
 prix deco


This competition looks for creativity and innovation. In September it named two joint winners who had exhibited at Now! Le Off, the Paris Design Week's fringe event at the Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design.


Aurélie Hoegy - Dancers

This original, nonconformist young designer convinced the jury with her project in which she seeks to disturb balance in order to develop a new freedom of expression, in an artistic approach to design. She considers it her mission to question the conventionality and prejudices within our society. Dancers is a collection of chairs in soaked and dried cotton and latex, exploring a new perspective very different from that of classical pieces and their everyday use.


Jules Levasseur - Projet S

This young creative draws on industrial design and processes in thinking up his pieces. He hopes to create a social and societal impact through design and production. With Projet S, in collaboration with Petrus, he makes his mark by using an industrial material that symbolises elementary construction: corrugated iron. Employed for its mechanical, plastic and rhythmic qualities, it gives industrial production its own identity.
