Pattern Play Design Contest
The appeal of Marcel Wanders is far reaching. His use of pattern in unexpected application has earned him a well honored place among all types of designers and fans.
"To promote the launch of Wanders' latest design, the Can Can pattern, YLighting has placed an open call for creative designers, challenging them to find interesting applications of the motif. In response, an impassioned flood of people from around the world have submitted their original takes on the appropriated design. Among the current selection of entries, a few of the standouts include Can Can patterned contact lenses, a parasol, a cocktail strainer and a set of dumbbells.
Submissions will be accepted until 15 January 2012. Prizes for the contest are $2,500, $1,000 and $500 for the top three, and the top eight receive a FLOS Can Can Light. Head over to the contest page to download the pattern and enter your own creation. "
