Applications open for the fourth annual, Mercedes Benz Design Award on Wednesday 7 November. Broadsheet and Mercedes-Benz have again partnered for this year's event in the aim to foster and nurture the next generation of local designer talent, with calls for a 'design for the living space,' which must incorporate an element of sustainability.
The competition offers one Australian designer a life-changing opportunity for their winning design to be manufactured by one of Australia's leading local design retailers, Cult, as well as mentorship from Australia's design leaders.
Previous winners of the award include Tom Fereday in 2017 for his SIA chair: a slim solid ash-timber and stainless steel composition with an articulating backrest.
Open to designers of all experience, the Mercedes-Benz Design Award is an unique opportunity that can't be missed.
