I've just received an email from Jasmine of Louise Blouin Foundation, announcing the new extended deadline for Modern Painters RE:VISION Design Awards 2010. Designers have until December 1 to submit their designs. Below is the brief on the design award competition.
Modern Painters is a magazine that showcases creators—artists, designers, filmmakers, architects—who are experimenting with new ways of seeing the world.
We invite emerging designers of every stripe to revisit, rethink, and reimagine how we live in our homes and to conceive an object or environment that offers a new, more enlightened lifestyle. Whether in the fields of furniture, lighting, product, interior, or environmental design, Modern Painters welcomes submissions that thoughtfully explore new ways to live, work, play, and interact at home.
The first-prize winner of RE:VISION will receive US$10,000
The two runners-up will be awarded US$2,500 each.
All three will be profiled in the May 2010 issue of Modern Painters and on ARTINFO.com.
The work of 10 semifinalists will also be featured on ARTINFO.com.
The Jurors are:
Ross Lovegrove, evolutionary designer and principal, Ross Lovegrove Studio, London
Renny Ramakers, design historian and co-founder, Droog, Amsterdam
David Revere McFadden, chief curator, Museum of Arts and Design, NYC
Rosanne Somerson, furniture maker and professor of furniture design, RISD, Providence, Rhode Island
