Designers have just one month from today, to submit their entries to Lucite International’s inaugural LuciteLux® JUST IMAGINE Awards 2013 before the deadline for entries on September 27th.
The JUST IMAGINE Awards were introduced earlier this year to celebrate the creativity and innovation of designers from a wide range of industries, who have chosen to work with LuciteLux®. Entries will be judged by seven prestigious judges, including the modern furniture designer Alexandra Von Furstenberg, and fine artist Anne-Louise Ewen.
Alexandra Von Furstenberg created the AVF LLC brand in 2007, which designs and produces luxurious, innovative, modern furniture made of acrylic. Alexandra studied costume design and art history at Parsons The New School for Design and Brown University before launching her career working for the American fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg.
The painter and sculptor, Anne-Louise Ewen creates distinctive designs using LuciteLux® and was recently commissioned to create paintings using LuciteLux® as the canvas for the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. Anne-Louise studied studio arts in Paris and New York, and was previously designer and chief branding officer for A.R.T Inc, an artisan company founded by Aaron R. Thomas, who is well known for custom LuciteLux® furniture. Watch a recent video of her talking about painting on LuciteLux® here.
The winner of the JUST IMAGINE Awards will be celebrated in a high-profile campaign that includes a full-page spread in Architectural Record, a magazine that reaches nearly 100,000 people in the field of architecture and design. The winning designer will also feature in a documentary about their work with LuciteLux®, which will debut at an exclusive screening party later in the year.
The JUST IMAGINE Awards will also honour a runner-up with inclusion in the winner’s news release, presence on the LuciteLux® social media pages and a mention in the documentary.
