unique youngstar nominees 2017

Within the newcomer competition unique youngstar 15 young designers have been selected. The announcement of the three jury winners and the audience award will take place at spoga+gafa 2017. The competition is looking for creative designs and concepts for outdoor living.

Record participation in the young designer award: 81 applications from 18 countries were submitted to the expert jury of spoga+gafa for the unique youngstar 2017. 15 of the best ideas on the theme ‘Outdoor Living’ have now been nominated for this year’s final. The nomination guarantees that attention is attracted to the participating young creative designers. The prototypes will be presented to the trade audience during the largest garden trade fair in the world. Furthermore, a public vote will be held on the homepage of garden unique. The winners of the unique youngstar will be distinguished on the first day of spoga+gafa. Prize-money to the total value of Euro 7,000 (1st to 3rd place and the public prize) will be awarded.

As a fixed component of spoga+gafa, the unique youngstar will be offering creativity and inspiration in the ‘Outdoor Living’ section for the fifth time already. The constantly growing interest underlines the fact that the competition has established itself within the industry and that it is an excellent networking platform. The participating young designers come from leading colleges such as Cranbrook Academy of Art, USA or Design Academy Eindhoven, Netherlands. The quality of the submitted products is excellent. This makes it even more difficult for the jury to select the nominees based on the critera, the overall concept, the originality of the design, the conceptual and visionary quality, the functionality and the quality of presentation. However, ultimately they had to come to a decision.

The winners of the unique youngstar will be distinguished at 4:00 p.m. in the garden unique Bistro on the first day of spoga+gafa, 3 September 2017. All information on the nominees is available under the following link: Interested parties can vote for their favourites up until 25.08.2017.
