Actiu awards the best proposals for product design and Interior Design following the conference “For a better more sustainable future”.

On Thursday 7th February the award ceremony for product design and interior design took place at Actiu facilities in Castalla resulting from a competition organized by Actiu with the participation of two of the most important schools of our area: EPSA, the Valencia Polytechnic University, Alcoy campus and EASDA, Art and Superior Design School in Alcoy.

After the conference about sustainable design which took place last May, Actiu proposed the ideas suggested during this meeting to be turn into reality. This encounter brought together hundreds of students and professionals, amongst these the following speakers could be found: José Mª Tomás Llavador, an international well-known architect, Marcelo Alegre from the design studio Alegreindustrial and Pepe Cosin from Cosin&Cosin, a valencian interior designer with a long career.

The competition “for a more sustainable future” aimed to spread the design culture by awarding the most innovative ideas which the design and interior design students from EPSA and EASDA schools proposed. The two raised issues were based on the design of a range of seats “Soft Seating” to give support to a variety of activities within the same space: rest room, informal work, brainstorming sessions, private or more relaxed conversation, etc... And the design of “Actiu Points”: design of Actiu product exhibition spaces via elements which transmit the values of the brand, identifying the Actiu point by an own distinctiveness capable of being adapted to different spaces.

The members of the jury, Marcelo Alegre, Pepe Cosin and those responsible for Actiu Communication, marketing and design, highlighted the projects by: its innovative designs, considering its wide range, the graphic representations and the transmission of Actiu values. The winners are:
