The concept of Harmomy Maker was the theme of the first Natuzzi Design Award, a competition organized as part of the Natuzzi Designer Club project, inaugurated last May to support architects and designers working in China.
Designers from all over the country have been asked to reinterpret the feeling and summarize the idea of living according to Natuzzi Italia, in an interaction of influences and trends that has generated a spreading of suggestions and ideas that renovate the concept of living harmony.
Eight award-winning projects at the “Looking for Harmony Maker” show, held in Shanghai last week, at 1933 Old Millfun, a symbolic image of fashion and creativity in the metropolis.
Eight prestigious names selected to judge the applying proposals: Italian designers Claudio Bellini and Mauro Lipparini; Professor Su Dan, Associate Chairman of the Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University; Mr. Ricky Wong, one of Hong Kong’s most influential designers; Wang Chuanshun, executive director of China Institute of Interior Design and Director of Shanghai Association; Mr. Sun Qun, founder of Beijing Design Week; Zhao Hu, deputy director of Design Committee of China National Interior Decoration Association; and finally Pasquale Junior Natuzzi, Chief Marketing & Communication Officer of Natuzzi.
Winner of the contest, “A Spiritual Home – Natuzzi Harmony Home”, conceived by Liu Shida and Wang Xi, a project that incorporates elements from traditional Chinese paintings into a visual experience between modern and trendy space; a balanced mix between Eastern and Western design, which perfectly captures and represents the mission of this design competition.
Winning works will be exhibited in the Natuzzi flagship stores in China and we’ll also be displayed during the next Milan Furniture Fair.
