Call for projects

PARIS DESIGN WEEK is launching the 8th year of its call for proposals, open to all New Design Talents and Emerging Design Brands.

Take part in the RADO STAR PRIZE 2018 competition by submitting your project by the 15th May at 1pm at the latest.

The LE OFF exhibition is one of the highlights of PARIS DESIGN WEEK, a platform dedicated to the New Design Talents, who will present prototypes or models available for production; and Emerging Design Brands, who will display models already on the market or scheduled for sale. This developing creative scene represents an increasingly international pioneering force, that chooses PARIS DESIGN WEEK and its host city as a springboard for their career.

RADO STAR PRIZE 2018 Contest

Take part in the RADO STAR PRIZE 2018 competition by submitting your project by the 15th May at 1pm at the latest.

Once again RADO is organising the RADO STAR PRIZE France with the participation of all of Le Off’s new design talents. This competition rewards the most creative and innovative projects on show at the exhibition. Prizes will be awarded at the official prize ceremony on Saturday 9th September at the Docks-Cité de la Mode et du Design to the winner of the Prix du Jury (who will receive a RADO watch and a cheque for 5,000 euros) and the winner of the Prix du Public, selected by visitors voting online.
To take part in the Rado Star Prize France 2018, the candidate designers must present a project on the theme of ‘the technicality of materials’. The jury will judge work in terms of the designer’s use of materials, how they are transformed and the manufacturing process. The work in question must be either a finished product, a prototype, a mock-up or a pre-production model that hasn’t yet been commercialised.
