In the first year of the Canadian edition of the Rado Star Prize the focus will be on the concept of “Design Inspired by Nature”- a theme that hopes to explore the influence nature can have on design. The Rado Star Prize, which is held internationally to promote the work of young designers, is another example of Rado’s continued collaboration with the world of DESIGN. This year for the forst time in collaboration with IDS.



Rado is looking for innovative ideas for using new materials paying tribute to the theme DESIGN INSPIRED BY NATURE. The materials, look or design of the object should be a tribute to functional design for daily use with materials, textures, with inspiration derived from nature.

IDS Toronto & Rado

Nine finalists and one winner of the Rado Star Prize Canada 2019 will be selected by a specialist jury comprising IDS participants, Rado and members of the canadian design community. The winner will receive $5,000 in prize money to fund the production of their design concept as well as a Rado True Thinline timepiece, and all finalists will have the opportunity to display their concepts at the IDS show in Toronto taking place in January 2019. An additional prix du public winner, selected through online voting, will also be rewarded at the end of the show.


Design-driven Swiss watchmaker Rado is pleased to announce its partnership with Canada’s premier design fair, Interior Design Show (IDS), as part of the brand’s global commitment to design. The partnership will see Rado host installations at the Vancouver and Toronto editions of IDS and run its famous Rado Star Prize competition in Canada for the first time.
