First of all, let’s start by saying that we are really impressed. Impressed by the works you sent us. Impressed by your creativity. But most of all, impressed by the enthusiasm you all showed towards this great challenge: finding “green” and eco-friendly ideas, all in the name of design.

It was hard to make a selection. The projects you sent us were a lot, coming from seventeen different european countries and all very interesting. But this is life, and only some of you will make it to the Design Week in Milan.

The selected projects will be exhibited in the window of the historical shop Rossignoli, situated in the strategic heart of Brera.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to announce the winners of the Eco-creative contest:
