Winner of the Prix du Jury

Congratulations to Elodie Rampazzo, the winner of the Rado Star Prize France 2016 prix du jury! Elodie wowed the jury with her project “Nomade”, a modular office desk which can be customized to your individual needs and taste. You can create your own desk surface and working environment by choosing and configuring various different modules.
“A project which completely deconstructs the office desk as we know it and takes it to a new level of usage, opening up some audacious possibilities for the future!
A nice example of the credo “less is more”



By offering financial support and media exposure, the RADO STAR PRIZE aims to make the young designers’ winning projects known to design professionals and the general public. The RADO STAR PRIZE consists of two awards: a jury prize and a prize selected by the public. A jury of professionals from the world of design will meet on 16 June to choose the recipient of the Prix du Jury. The winner, who will receive a Rado watch and a cheque for €5,000, will be selected from among participants in the PARIS DESIGN WEEK Exhibition at Now! Le off. The jury will also select seven projects to compete for the Prix du Public, which is awarded based on online voting. The winner will also receive an iconic Rado watch.


Innovative design and high-tech scratch resistant materials are the essence of the Rado brand. For Rado, design is intimately linked to more intangible values, and the brand is committed to the ongoing quest for groundbreaking ideas. This philosophy of constantly raising the bar and turning inspiration into tangible realities has been rewarded by more than 30 international design awards, including the 2016 Red Dot Design Award for the Rado True Open Heart.
