Calling all design students! Keen to design a sustainable planter? Submissions for local brand Plantr‘s Annual Design Challenge 2020 are now open.

The challenge, in partnership with VISI, the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA), African Institute of Interior Design Professions (IID) and KeyShot Pro, is open to design school students across South Africa, providing a platform for up-and-coming talent.

The brief calls for students to submit two or three planter designs in a variety of sizes that not only embody the aesthetic of the Plantr brand, but are also environmentally friendly and sustainable, using a maximum of three materials.

Judging will be based on innovation and originality, sustainability, aesthetic design, detail, presentation and adherence to the brief.

Winning entrants will receive an exposure package, production of their winning design, a commission package, a VISI magazine subscription, the design featured on VISI platforms, a KeyShot Pro rendering course, a GBCSA Interiors Course, and an IID membership.
