As Europe’s premiere supplier of paper, packaging and visual communication products, the Antalis Group is hardwired to the design and creative industries. A multi-specialist paper merchant, Antalis’ vast range of products provides designers and makers with not just paper stock, but also the creative power to influence and captivate audiences, empower ideas and concepts, and help push the boundaries for decorating and personalising spaces. With the interior design industry now an increasingly important part of its business, Antalis has teamed up with Wallpaper* to launch a special competition, the Antalis Interior Design Award. Open to architects, interior designers and printers, the international competition is a unique opportunity to shine a light on multi-disciplinary portfolios and a new generation of burgeoning design talent.
The Antalis International Interior Design Award is open to anyone developing or undertaking an interior design project. Awards will be given for the best and most dynamic design projects. Two types of project are eligible:
1. Current/ completed projects
Antalis welcomes architects, interior designers, printers and brand owners to submit any project completed (or under way) between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2017 that uses at least one product from Antalis’ Coala catalogue. Projects will be allocated to one of the following categories and six separate prizes awarded: Hospitality Award for hotel design, Restaurant Award for restaurant and dining design, Retail Award for shop/retail design, Office Award for office/workspace design, Home Award for home design, Public Premises Award for public/outdoor space design
2. Projects Using 3D blank models
Architects, interior designers and students are encouraged to use Antalis Coala products to fashion 3D models that allow their creativity and conceptual talents to shine brightly.
All creations will be submitted to an international jury presided over by world-renowned scenographer François Confino and Wallpaper* Bespoke art director Aneel Kalsi, alongside other names from the international design arena.
Winners will benefit from wide media exposure via Wallpaper*, the competition’s official press partner, and selected works will be displayed on the Antalis Gallery website throughout the competition’s gestation. There will also be a large-scale, multimedia campaign using all methods of communication at the organiser’s and partner’s collective disposal.
Winners’ work will also be published in a book showcasing the best projects from the competition. Sent to key players in interior design, 10,000 copies of The Book will be printed and displayed at international trade fairs and industry events where Antalis is present. The Antalis Interior Design Award will also be awarding an additional prize to the overall contestant/project obtaining the most ‘likes’ on social media.
Competition entrants will be able to submit project files from 1 September 2017 and the closing date is 31 December 2017. Registration can only be completed online, once the competition is open. You can put forward one or more designs, as long as they use at least one product from the Antalis Coala range. The jury must be able to judge your work in a fair manner. You must also present submissions in a specific format. Projects will be displayed on the Antalis Gallery once approved by the organisers.
