International Master Scholarships Competition in Product Design, NABA, Italy

It is clear how models, habits and strategies that have sustained Design development over the last century have been slowly disappearing, exposing their weaknesses. For years, Design has supported the survival of traditional consumer behavior, through the creation of concepts of beauty, wellness, metropolis, architecture, interior and product design.

Design and manufacturing have been side by side since the very beginning. Through this alignment, design was able to accept manufacturing’s mission, mechanisms and values to achieve a problem-solving role without asking any questions on the paradigms of production, distribution and consumption.

However, questioning is the behavior that in topical historical moments was able to open up new ways of approaching the creation of man’s “home and things”.

This competition aims to predict modern solutions to the incoming transformation of the product design industry. Projects that aim to envision possible futures based on the paradigms and values of new/different living spaces:

  • New manufacturing and production methods
  • Different approaches to using materials and energies
  • Rethinking the concepts of wellness and beauty
  • New ways of distributing, owning, accessing, consuming and using
  • A project able to show hints about paradigms and values of the future.

Required Materials

  • Max 5 A3 boards in PDF or TIFF files that fully represent your design idea
  • An abstract of the project: max 1 page

Candidates are also required to submit:

  • Personal portfolio of works and projects
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Motivation statement
  • Copy of Bachelor Degree/Academic diploma translated into English/Italian
  • Academic transcript/marksheet of previous studies, translated into English/Italian, listing subjects and exams, with corresponding number of hours/credits
  • Copy of passport
  • NABA Master Programs Application Form – Academic Year 2018/2019

Candidates are asked to send their materials in English language and in two files in PDF format: one including competition project and one including the remaining materials.

* Application fee is waived for competition participants

International Master Scholarships Competition in Interior Design, NABA, Italy

Over recent years, interiors have come to play an increasingly important role in the world in which we live. In fact, interior design should be viewed these days from a different perspective. Interior spaces are to be conceived as constructed substances, whose penetration no longer means entering into an empty space, but being part of a complex body. Interior design embeds itself in history, nestling in the interstices between objects, creating situations. In addition to being shaped in accordance with their function, interior spaces reflect the needs of aesthetic representation, of visual communication and of evolving dynamic cultural requirements. The organization of interior spaces speaks volumes, revealing their reason for being through a complex system of shapes, atmospheres, references and symbols.

Required Materials
Competition participants are expected to submit no more than three A3 sketches and a short text written in English. The materials are to be provided in a digital format (pdf file, max 10 Mb). Entrants are free to chose the scale of reference for their designs, but should specify what scale has been used. When illustrating designs, particular importance should be given to the visual and scenic representation of the interior space (3d models, perspective views and sections, rendering, etc.).

Candidates are also required to submit:

  • Personal portfolio of works and projects
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Motivation statement
  • Copy of Bachelor Degree/Academic diploma translated into English/Italian
  • Academic transcript/marksheet of previous studies, translated into English/Italian, listing subjects and exams, with corresponding number of hours/credits;
  • NABA Master Programs Application Form – Academic Year 2018/2019

Candidates are asked to send their materials in English language and in two files in PDF format: one including competition project and one including the remaining materials.
