Canadian DXV Design Competition open for submissions
DXV, luxury brand of kitchen and bath products, has officially launched its fourth annual DXV Design Competition in Canada, running from October 16 to November 24, 2017.
The DXV Design Competition offers emerging and established designers the opportunity to showcase their creative design talents on a national scale. This year, designers are challenged to create vignettes drawing on DXV’s #WorldOfDXV, a concept that influenced this year’s DXV Design Panel and draws on global design inspiration. Participating designers will be required to submit a design incorporating at least three DXV products and depicting cultural influence from one of four cities where the four design movements of DXV are prominent in design and architecture: St. Petersburg, Paris, Brazil and Tokyo.
The Grand Prize winner will be awarded two trips including airfare and accommodations to experience two of Canada’s more design centric cities, Toronto and Vancouver. The prize also includes passes to attend the 2018 IDS Toronto and IDS Vancouver shows, where their design will be prominently showcased in the LIXIL booth.
The winner will also receive professional photography of their winning design, $5,000 worth of DXV product and design credit on all DXV Canada social media channels – allowing for priceless exposure. Second and third place winners will be awarded DXV product for their submission.
“Bringing the World of DXV to the Canadian design industry is what we want to do. In return, we see and recognize incredible talent. This contest has launched careers and taken design businesses to the next level. It’s exciting for everyone,” said Isabel Carvalhana, Premium/Luxury Brand Manager, LIXIL Canada Inc. “Each year this competition gets better and better, and we look forward to seeing the Canadian design industry take advantage of this exciting opportunity for national exposure.”
