SIT Innovation Center – Winner of the Year – Professional

SIT Furniture Design Award has created an “Innovation Center” focusing every year on 3 topics to highlight invention, look at today’s challenges, and how to overcome them. The winner of the “Innovation Center” will receive a grant of US$4000.00 to realize a prototype or start the production. For its inaugural launch, the digital innovation center will focus on:

How to be more user-centric? How to integrate the home office in a limited personal space? Imagine the Seat & Desk of tomorrow? What are the new needs? … etc…
  • Technology integration: upgrade your furniture: What is the next technology integration in furniture design? Today’s integration of the “Internet of Things (IoT)” concept and services are growing exponentially. Let’s imagine, build, scale new innovative furniture’s and experiences improving our daily life.
  • Reuse and/or Recycle: give a second life: Recycle and reuse are the most effective ways to save natural resources, protect the environment, and save money.

Submission tips to SIT Design Award

We have created a list of the best tips to guide you through the submission process, step by step, making sure your design entry is strong and will have a positive impact on the Jury:

  • Complete your user/company profile. Our system provides an auto-generated invoice for your submission fees, so please add your company address, e-mail, VAT number, etc. Also, share your company information, and any previous awards won!
  • Since we have an international jury panel, the project description, credits, and other information need be written in English.
  • The entry description is one of the most essential parts of your submission, so make your description engaging and interesting; keep it succinct, but still, give as much information as possible; share the original idea for the design, the creative trigger, how it contributes to society or local communities, etc.
  • You can upload up to 10 images with each entry. Select some images that give an overall view of the product design, and others which are close-up picture. Please keep in mind that in case you have a winning submission, the cover image (the first image you upload) will be displayed on the website Winners Gallery and in the Annual SIT Digital Book, so it GFPuld be the image that best represents your entry overall.
  • Don’t forget you can also upload a PDF file with any additional project details, 3D drawings, product specifications, business plans, or any other information you may feel is important to share with the Jury. This is done on the Image Upload stage of the submission.
