Copper Home 2012

 

The Italian Copper Institute has announced the fourth Copper and Home 2012 Competition, celebrating the success of an initiative that is now among the main events in the world of design. 








Copper Home 2010

 

The Italian Copper Institute has announced the winners of the third Copper and Home Competition, celebrating the success of an initiative that is now among the main events in the world of design.
Over 300 projects were entered into the competition, submitted by professional architects and designers as well as students in schools of graphics, design, interior design and architecture from all over the world, who have used copper and its alloys to create household furnishings or decorations. 
The competition originated from a desire to relate the modern story of a historic and beautiful material in an innovative and unconventional way, and has been judged by a meticulous and highly-qualified jury composed of recognised professionals Antonia Astori, Giulio Iacchetti and Marco Romanelli.
The winning projects represent new concepts for, or reinventions of, common household items created using copper, either in its pure state, or as an alloy such as bronze or brass, and perhaps in combination with other materials, exploring the infinite expressive and functional possibilities of a time-honored but very contemporary metal.
The Copper and Home competition is part of the broad range of activities and initiatives conducted for over thirty years by the Italian Copper Institute, a non-profit association promoting the use of copper and its alloys both in the more traditional areas of industry, and also in modern design. 

Thanks to its distinctiveness and extraordinary versatility, copper offers a great range of manufacturing possibilities and applications, from lighting devices, vases and mirrors to tables, chairs and interior decorations as well as partitions, flooring and radiators. 
Its excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, malleability, ductility and durability, as well as its antibacterial functions and total recyclability, make it a material that enjoys increasing use, especially in contemporary design oriented toward new, eco-sustainable lifestyles. 
In the Professional Category, the first prize was awarded to the designer Emanuele Magini for his project "Willy".
The second prize went to the designer Ernesto Messineo, creator of "Segui la tua passione".
An Honorable Mention was awarded to the designer duo Patrizio Cardella and Marcella Toninello for their "Copper Foam Vases" and the designer Andrea Loreta with "Turn".
Anaick Lejart of ENSAAMA (?cole Nationale Sup?rieure des Arts Appliqu?s et des Metiers d'Art, Paris) won the first prize in the Student Category with the project "4.5 mm".
Honorable Mentions were awarded to Adrien Goubet (ENSCI, ?cole Nationale Sup?rieure de Cr?ation Industrielle, Paris) for "Copper bells", Manon Leblanc for "Fago" and Ji Yeon Yoo for "Light up your brain", both from the ?cole sup?rieure des arts d?coratifs, Strasbourg Cedex in France, and Camille Philippon (ENSAAMA, ?cole Nationale Sup?rieure des Arts Appliqu?s et des Metiers d'Art, Paris) for "Elica radiator".

Copper Home 2008

 

The Italian Copper Institute, after the successful first edition in 2007, awards the winners of the second "Copper and home" international award assigned to the best idea and design for objects made of copper and its alloys. During this second edition, "Copper and the home" has already turned into an international appealing event for the world of project design, gaining a wider participation by Italian and international professionals and students. The award was devoted to young architects and designers, and students attending schools of graphics, interiors design and faculties of architecture. The jury, composed by Marco Romanelli, Beppe Finessi and Emilio Nanni, was favourably impressed not only by the numerous projects that were submitted for the contest, but also for their quality. Among the projects, are to be noticed solutions which, going beyond the formal stereotypes of copper, get to innovative functions and impressions connected to the world of design as well as to the more up-to-date artistic research. New paths in contemporary world are now open for this antique material.

Copper Home 2007


The competition, launched by the European Copper Institute and the Istituto Italiano del Rame, was a tremendous success, attracting almost 70 entries from 7 different countries, including Italy, Holland and France. Participants, who included both students and professionals, had to design domestic objects based on the use of copper or copper alloys.The jury, which consisted of art and design professionals, including Cristina Morozzi, design critic, nominated two winners in the architects and designers category, and awarded a special commendation in the students?category. The prize-winning entries demonstrated that considerable thought had been given to making use of coppers unique properties. As a result, its potential antibacterial properties, decorative quality, varied colour palette and malleability were used in a number of particularly innovative applications.The winner of the first prize, the young Italian architect Francesca Cuicchio, suggested that proliferation of the tiger mosquito could in part be prevented by using copper, and she designed a set of 5 elegant accessories for this purpose. The tiger mosquito is the main route for the transmission of the chikungunya virus and can also transmit dengue.
