The Yilan Chair Design Competition is not only the first design competition brand to focus on a city in Taiwan it is one of only a handful of design events worldwide to adopt the theme of “children’s chairs.” Over the past four years, more than 2,560 works have been submitted and in 2016 a new record was set with works from 25 countries. Through the competition, invitations extended to professional designers and exhibition promotion programs, it has evolved from an international design competition into a major platform where talented designers can meet and exchange ideas. As a result, the Yilan Chair Design Competition has become an important cultural and creative furniture international competition brand.
The solicitation of works is divided into two categories: “Creative” (Group A) and “Practical” (Group B). In the “Creative” (Group A) category judges will be looking for children’s chairs that best relate the story of Yilan. The main objective in the “Practical” (Group B) category is to submit a work that can be mass produced and marketed. The jury panels for both groups base their determinations on the different core spirit of each category, though the broader aim is to attract a wide range of submitted works to gradually develop the Yilan chair industry and boost the “Yilan chair” brand, so that such items are sought after whether for oneself or as gifts.
Deadline for First evaluation document submission – Before 17:00, July 3, 2017.
