A WORD FROM ALAIN CREVET, CEO OF S.T.DUPONT
This first edition of the S.T. Dupont International Design Competition has been a success. 32,000 visitors came to discover the Competition, 80 candidates entered, and 32 projects were submitted from around the world. An equal number of men and women took part.
Given the quality of the work submitted, we took an additional three months to perform technical feasibility testing, which was not required of the candidates. That is the reason the winners are only being announced today.
I would like to thank all participants. They are living proof that the World of Design is brimming with talent. S.T. Dupont’s aim is to bridge tradition and modernity, to unite excellence and new ideas. To do so, we need new, outstanding designers. I personally chaired the selection panel and have not been disappointed.
So without further ado, it is my great pleasure to announce our three winners…
