RADO STAR PRIZE AUSTRIA 2017

Swiss watchmaker Rado is pleased to announce a competition for design talents: the Rado Star Prize Austria 2017. Starting in January 2017, the window of Rado’s Viennese boutique will feature a different design installation every month. The Rado Star Prize is a global design competition that promotes innovative design, with editions running in several different countries every year. The innovative winner of the Rado Star Prize 2017 will be announced in October 2017.

“Like Clockwork”

Time is fleeting, time slips away. This is the message behind “Like Clockwork” from the Practice + Theory design studio. In this installation, colour pigments mark off the seconds, minutes and hours on a piece of handmade paper. "Here, time is displayed in an analogue way,” says designer Andreas Pohancenik, providing an artistic explanation of his work.

LOUISA KOEBER WINS THE RADO STAR PRIZE AUSTRIA 2015

Koebler received € 5,000 in prize money and the chance to exhibit her works at the Rado Boutique during Vienna Design Week (September 25 – October 4, 2015).
