The Prix Émile Hermès for 2014 is now open, and all young designers are encouraged to enter. The Foundation d’entreprise Hermès recognises the importance of supporting creativity, and developed the prize to salute designs whose purpose and meaning reflects society’s current and future needs. This years theme is based on our need to escape the exhausting activity and obligations of modern life, and take some time out for ourselves. Submissions can include a machine or utensil, piece of furniture, or architectural idea. Get designing, designers.
