Philipp Hainke’s graduation project PowerPlace is selected for the Pure Talents contest in Cologne and Aleksander Łuczak was selected with his Trunk furniture, a system that enables individual combinations of furniture.
The Pure Talents Contest, which is held annually as part of the imm cologne, is one of the most recognized design competitions for young designers worldwide. Here up-and-coming talents can present their products to a large audience and make initial contacts in the international design industry.
IMM mentions: „From the more than 500 entries from 52 countries, the expert jury of the 19th PTC nominated the 20 best designs – despite the cancellation of imm cologne 2022: All selected projects show great market potential and convince both aesthetically and technically. Above all, however, the next design generation is looking for one thing: sustainable product concepts.“
Designer Sebastian Herkner commented on the result of the current Pure Talents Contest: „It’s impressive how many high-quality designs were submitted this year – despite the difficult circumstances of the past few months.“
The 3 winners will be announced in February in the imm Magazine.
