Time to design – new talent award 2009
Time to design – new talent award is an international design award with focus on the needs of young design talents in the beginning of their career. The award consists of three months residency at the National Workshops for Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, 50.000 DKK donated by the Cultural Ministry of Denmark, two weeks exhibition in Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store and career coaching.
To a design talent the combination of a residency at the National Workshops and an exhibition at Normann Copenhagen makes up an opportunity to become absorbed in the work amidst competent guidance and professional facilities at the workshops, – and subsequently showing the result in an attractive showroom.
In 2009 the jury consisted of the three designers Thomas Benzen, Mathilde Aggebo and Dorte Østergaard Jakobsen, as well as Frederik Hardvendel, director at the National Workshops, Poul Madsen, CEO Normann Copenhagen and Ida Marie Nissen, architect and co-founder of Link UP.
The award was established in 2008 and is based on cooperation between the National Workshops for Arts and Crafts, Norman Copenhagen and Link UP. In 2010 there will be a new chance for a design talent to develop a professional career through Time to design.
