Brabantia launches Design Your Bin competition
Leading housewares brand Brabantia, world renowned for bringing stylish design to all aspects of kitchen and homeware, has launched a competition to find an aspiring designer to create a new design for its 2013 Retro Bin range.
The Design Your Bin competition was launched on 9 April and is open to all budding creatives throughout the globe - age, experience and location are no barriers.
Anne Slaats, Communication Manager at Brabantia said: “Offering consumers the opportunity to design ideas for a future product is a perfect way to work more closely with our audience to find a relevant, inspirational and unique new design.”
Anyone with creative flair can submit a design - it could be a favourite photo, a piece of fine art, urban graffiti street art, or a detailed illustration or textile. The winning design will go into production in 2013.
There are six categories: Modern art, Street art, Photography, Illustration, Textiles and handmade and Montage. Any medium will be accepted as long as it can be uploaded and reproduced digitally. Designs need to be uploaded via designyourbin.com in JPG format by 10 June 2012.
As well as getting to see their design produced and on sale as part of Brabantia’s range next year, the overall winner selected by Brabantia’s international design panel will also receive a bin featuring their design and 1,500 Euros worth of Brabantia products.
Visitors to the Design Your Bin site are invited to vote for their favourite design. The designer with the most votes will win Brabantia products worth 1,000 Euros.
The winners of the six individual categories as selected by Brabantia’s design panel will each receive their choice of either a London or I’ve Bin Romantic Retro Bin.
All entries are displayed in the Gallery, where the general public can vote for their favourite designs. So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to join the ranks of the Brabantia designers?
