With the approach of Paris Design Week, one of the most beloved design weeks in the world, the finalist for the Rado Prize Contest have created exceptional design projects that are based on this year’s theme, Nature! Organized by the Swiss watch brand, this imperative contest seeks to acknowledge the work of emerging designers while promoting design and innovation. The competition consists of a jury prize and a public prize aiming to make the winners’ projects known to the entire design community, so let’s get to know each one of them.

According to the representatives of Rado, the theme will implicate a search for materials, textures and forms that were inspired by the world of nature. Designers must have a sensitivity when it comes to the sustainable of the materials so as to transmit to future generations a sense of durability, emotion and awareness of alternative consumption.
