At Maisons du Monde, we believe that it is possible to create sustainable products without having to turn our backs on style! For the second year running, we offered students from French design schools the chance to work on the eco-design of furniture or decorations.
Look back at the second edition
For this 2nd edition, 50 candidates from 17 different schools sent us their projects: Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique, Pivaut, STRATE, Politech Orléans, Condé Lyon, Boulle, Condé Paris, ENSAAMA, ESMOD Paris, CREAPOLE ESDI, Ecole Supérieure de Design des Landes, ENSCI, Académie Charpentier, Université Toulouse II - Jean Jaurès, Condé Nice, Bellecour école and ESADSE.
At the start of February, our designers, stylists and product managers pre-selected 11 projects for the furniture category and 5 projects for the decoration category. At the end of February, a jury of eco-design experts, including our partners Eco-mobilier, FSC®, EVEA, Eco TLC, supported by the ADEME and the Fondation pour la Nature et l’Homme, rated the environmental reduction efforts described by the students.
At Maisons du Monde, we are overflowing with ideas as are our customers! Everyone has a role to play in creation, our rallying call: Let’s create”
Turning an idea, even one that is slightly crazy, into a marketable product is what we do. The Awards invite us to pass on our profession to future creators: help them to become professional by raising their awareness about sustainable development is proof that eco-design can rhyme with style. The Sustainable Creation Awards bring to life a collective work with expert partners and schools on creation, learning and the environment.
