Now in its first edition, "Idee per il mobile" is a competition for young designers who wish to submit new and
brilliant solutions for the furniture component sector: from semi-finished parts to accessories, from
hardware to the components and technologies that go into the design of a piece of furniture and often
determine its success.

The initiative is promoted by the magazine “Dossier Compomobili” and by Ditre Gruppo Poligrafico, that for
years have also organised a major competition in the lighting sector.

It is sponsored by companies that view creativity as their main asset and propose special awards on specific
themes, such as Diemmebi for the design of components for community and office seats, INIPRESS for
the design of plastic accessories and products, Ipea for the design of furniture feet and bases and Terno
Scorrevoli for the development of sliding elements for doors and furniture.

The purpose of the competition is not limited to creating an opportunity for an encounter between young
designers and manufacturing companies, it is also to inform economic operators the world over about new
possibilities for optimising vital resources such as quality, creativity and innovation.

Components play the star role in furniture design and innovation.

The projects must be received by the secretariat of the competition by 03/09/2005.
We look forward to receiving new ideas to give fresh vitality and momentum to the market. Your design
proposals will be submitted to the furniture manufacturers, who may contact you to make your ideas into
successful products.
