In just a few days the registration period for the 2019 Cristalplant Design Contest will come to an end. Registering is simple: just upload your project to the online portal by 28 February.

To compete in this international contest, which for over a decade has been awarding talented young men and women from the interior design sector (this year those born after 1983), designers are asked to create an accessory dedicated to the entrance area which makes use of the Cristalplant material.
