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

Fleet

  • By: Carolin Thieme, Halle (Saale), Germany
  • Material: Concrete
  • Size: 3 x 40 x 34 cm

Fleet is a floor covering that is inspired by the Wadden Sea in northern Germany. It takes up the structure of the muddy bottom of the sea and its naturally formed grooves can function as drain for rainwater. The tiles are formed hexagonally and coated with a sealant, so that water cannot get into the concrete. The floor covering can be used in public spaces like pedestrian zones.

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.
