From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Azure’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

The Pure Talents Contest is one of the most renowned contests for young designers worldwide. Students and young graduates are invited once again this year to submit their designs for contemporary, sustainable living objects. The best 20 among them will be invited by the organiser to present their prototypes to the trade world at the international interiors trade fair imm cologne 2020.

The 17th Pure Talents Contest (PTC), the contest for young designers of the international interiors trade fair imm cologne has begun.

to take part in the exhibition and competition pledge to make a 1:1
