RELEASE YOUR CREATIVITY:
RESTILE 2020

REGULATIONS

 

1_ SUBJECT  

RESTILE is the contest promoted by Mirage and directed towards designers, creatives and project designers, aimed at identifying new aesthetic horizons for the production of porcelain stoneware slabs.

It’s a project with the aim of finding innovative product solutions driven by style trends and an alternative approach to redefining the Vision of porcelain stoneware.

 

2_OBJECTIVES OF THE CONTEST

The objective of RESTILE is to create a product or collection which is, above all, innovative, through an original interpretation of the aesthetic quality of the material.
Collection is considered a series of tiles sharing a common design concept, offered in different colour variants.

Participants are required to submit one or more product Concepts following the criteria indicated below, which are considered as binding.

A _ For the 2020 edition, Mirage requires a personal and original reinterpretation of ceramic decorations in the 1200x2780 mm size, to be used as a covering with vertical installation, for two different application contexts, hereafter defined as “the Projects”:

Wall Project: Linear wall with 3-4 slabs side-by-side, with an application potential that can range from private to public (by way of example, but not in exhaustive terms: living area, wellbeing area, reception, restaurant);

or
Shower box Project: Shower cubicle composed of 2-3 slabs;

The concept of reinterpretation is free and may range from the selection of references to the material’s particular natural beauty, arriving at more contemporary or abstract approaches, as far as conceptual deconstruction solutions of the product taken as a reference.
The project therefore can be conceived and structured freely on the basis of new material and graphic references, but concepts based on the reference products already present in the Mirage slabs range available in the 1200x2780 size will also be considered https://www.mirage.it/en/special-solutions/large-size-slabs/

The concept must involve ideas regarding decorative graphic pattern(s) and a hypothetic range (maximum 3/4 colours or graphic subjects per concept), besides the possibility of combinations between them.

B_ The product must be conceived right from the design phase in such a way that it can be producible on an industrial scale.

C_ Concepts that involve patterns or illustrations that do not have graphic continuity between one slab and another are required in order to avoid graphic misalignments deriving from the production process of porcelain stoneware. In the same way, motifs that require precise centring inside the format are to be avoided.

 

3_CONDITIONS FOR PARTICIPATION

Participation in the Contest is free.
The contest is aimed at architects, designers, project designers and more in general creative Italians and foreigners.

Every participant is permitted the presentation of one or more concepts for one or both projects referred to in Point 2 (objectives of the contest), under letter A, with a maximum of 5 concepts in total.
