Competition: Design a metal frame

2008-05-25 00:00

Entries for Carrol Boyes Metal 2008 New Designer Search close on May 31, and Boyes urge all South African designers, artists and creatives to submit their entries.

Metal 2008 is the fourth annual New Designer Search. Every year, Boyes, one of South Africa’s most commercially successful product designers, invites aspiring designers to submit a three-dimensional prototype based on a particular theme. This year, entrants will be designing and making a prototype of a frame.

Boyes is encouraging entrants to be inspired by the idea of a frame holding a memory, or an image of someone special to create something completely original in form.

Designs must fuse three key elements: functionality, manufacturing potential and aesthetics. The winning designers stand in line to have their work manufactured, marketed and distributed by Carrol Boyes Functional Art and will take home a R50 000 cash prize.

Entry forms are available at Carrol Boyes stockists country wide. To download an entry form, go to To have an entry form faxed to you, call 021 0861 325 471.
