[D3] design talents – an annual program of imm cologne – showcases the work of young, avant-garde creatives across four sections: [D³] professionals; [D³] contest, [D³] schools, and [D³] alumni.

 

[D3] contest is the young designers competition which invites up-and-coming international designers to present their prototypes in the areas of furniture, lighting and interior design, whereby three of the exhibiting participants are acknowledged for their innovation. this year, lucien gumy was awarded first prize for his shelving system ‘l’étagère en bois’ which he developed as part of his industrial design studies at ECAL in lausanne, switzerland. the wooden storage network is a result of the swiss designer’s research into the assemblage of horizontal and vertical parts. his goal was to produce modular pieces by eliminating fittings and holes, thus, the construction of the resulting furniture is devoid of any hardware, and employs only a simple joint system to interlock the mantle boards and vertical supports.with this fastening method, the unit’s size can vary in length depending on the user’s needs.
