Disrupting Design With Fab

Are you an emerging designer or student who wants to disrupt the industry? Fab wants to make your dreams come true. We’re setting up shop in Milan during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, and together with our all-star team of celebrity judges, we want to see what you’ve got.

Bring your product ideas, portfolios, and prototypes on April 10th to be judged, on the spot, by:

Bradford Shellhammer, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer, Fab. 
Rob Forbes, Founder, Design Within Reach, Public Bikes.
Ambra Medda, Founder, Ambra Medda Office.

Yves Béhar, Designer and Founder, Fuse Project, and Chief Creative Officer, Jawbone.
Amanda Dameron, Editor in Chief, Dwell Magazine.
Michael Hermann, Director of Licensing, The Andy Warhol Foundation.
Birgit Lohmann, Editor in Chief, designboom.com

We’ll pick three designers whose products will be manufactured and sold to 12 million members on Fab. Your work should be of high quality and be a functional object made through handcrafted, high-tech, and/or experimental processes.

  • Pre-register with your name and country to: designforus@fab.com
  • When: 4pm—6pm Wednesday April 10th, 2013.
  • Where: Meet us by the trains at MOST.

Don’t miss this chance to better people’s lives with your design!
