METAL 2009 is an annual New Designer Search pioneered by Carrol Boyes (Pty) Ltd. Every year, Carrol Boyes invites aspiring designers – no experience or qualifications required – to submit a three-dimensional prototype based on a particular theme.
This year’s theme, ‘FRUITFULL – Design beyond the Bowl’, should inspire the creation of a fresh, functional and original prototype of a fruit bowl. The design needs to be viable for manufacture in aluminium, stainless steel or pewter, but the prototype may be constructed using any medium, eg. wood, ceramic, plastic, wire.
First prize is R50 000 and the possibility of working with the Carrol Boyes team in the design and manufacture of the bowl. Entries close 30 June 2009.
