Bemz loves design. So much so that we have decided to throw our energy in to a competition to help the next generation of textile designers break into the big league. Yes, we are proud to announce the inauguration of the Bemz Design Award!
Our new prize will bring together students from major design schools around Europe, encouraging their future design careers and inspiring upcoming generations of designers. Students working with textiles from renowned design schools in Sweden, Germany, France and the UK, will compete for the prize: one lucky winner from each country will see their design developed, produced and introduced into the ranks of the Bemz Designer Collection.

Furthermore, the winning creations will be available for purchase across the globe, from Australia to the Americas, making their way into homes as sofa covers, chair covers and bed covers to name a few, alongside the hundreds of home textile products available at Bemz.
The Bemz Design Award will be launched at the end of August 2013 at which time members of the judging panel and participated schools will be announced. You will also be able to follow step-by-step as the competition unfolds.
