HAU #1

TRADITIONAL BASQUE OBJECTS DESIGN COMPETITION
The aim of this call is to update the design of a traditional object present in the Basque culture. In this way, we contribute on the one hand, to research and the eventual recovery of traditional customs and on the other hand, to an adaptation, renewal and reinterpretation from the point of view of contemporary design. We would like to establish new relationships with our history and to expand the lines of research and the action fields of design.

The piece to be reviewed in this call is the taloaskea, a wooden bench-table used on farms all over the Basque Country.

This call is opened to any person or legal entity of any age (students, professionals or collectives) in the design field (industrial and product design, architecture, engineering, fine arts, etc.) from any country. Participation in the competition is free.
