Nominated for Unique Youngstar Design Contest at spoga+gafa 2013: Ar Vag by Thibault Penven

15 design projects by young talents are nominated for the unique youngstar award 2013. The theme of this year’s competition is “outdoor living”.

The nominated projects will be exhibited at the international garden trade fair spoga+gafa in Cologne, from September 8th to 10th. Between now and spoga+gafa we will introduce  the nominees in the garden unique category of this blog.

Ar Vag

  • By: Thibault Penven, Renens, Switzerland
  • Material: PVC tarpaulin, wood
  • Size: 200 x 110 x 50 cm

Ar Vag is a small foldable rowing boat that can be used as a shuttle between the shore and a ship or for a short fishing trip on a lake or in the sea.  When folded it doesn’t need more space than a tent and it can be carried just like a backpack. The hull of the boat consists of a series of wood sheets, covered with heat welded plastic tarpaulin. To launch it you simply unfold the thin light hull and stabilize it with the central bench which functions as a keystone.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.
