Dining outdoors is one of life’s great pleasures where food not only tastes better but all the senses associated with preparing and sharing food are heightened by the environment.
GANDIABLASCO, the renowned manufacturer of outdoors furniture, announces the theme of its highly anticipated annual design competition, which this year asks competitors to submit proposals for an outdoor kitchen space. This is the eleventh edition of the contest aimed at young design professionals between the ages of 18 and 35, the prizes will be awarded at the 2017 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
The Mediterranean lifestyle provided the original inspiration for the Valencia based company which this year celebrates its 75th anniversary. The light, the landscape, the architecture and the joie de vivre of the Mediterranean people continue to inspire GANDIABLASCO, a team who also shares a passion for gastronomy based on the ingredients that nature provides from the sea and the fertile planes that surround it. The Mediterranean diet is considered one of the healthiest worldwide, so it’s no surprise that cooking was chosen as the focus for this year’s call to creativity.
The jury for the competition will be announced during the month of October, entries must be received between September 1st 2016 and March 9th 2017. Enquiries and submissions must be made via the online platform at the GANDIABLASCO website where additional information regarding competition rules and regulations is available.
