Rado is delighted to announce the 2018 Rado Star Prize UK. Working in partnership with designjunction, Rado is looking for the next generation of British design talent and the shortlist of ten designers will be exhibited on the Rado stand at designjunction in September. In addition to the Winner, the public will be able to vote for their favourite project too.

Rado Starprize UK 2018


For its second edition of the Rado Star Prize UK, Rado is seeking the next generation of young designers, inviting them to respond to the theme ‘On Time / Time Off’. The theme explores two different ways design can improve life: by supporting busy, fast-paced habits and punctuality; or by allowing us to slow down, relax and create our own space. Rado is searching for innovative, cutting-edge design pieces that relate to either ‘On Time’, ‘Time Off’; or explore the relationship between them. This could be in either a conceptual sense or material approach. Product concepts will be considered from the fields of interior, product, industrial and technology design.

The Judges’ Winner prize was awarded to David Knowles who impressed the judges with his entry “GC18”. Inspired by the stunning natural beauty, grandeur and mystique of the Giant’s Causeway, GC18 is a coffee table that responds to the landscape’s aesthetic elements. 
The winner of the Public Vote was Martina Taranto with “The Limescale Project”. This project is about new production methods and rethinking industrialisation.


Each of the ten shortlisted designers from the Rado Star Prize UK 2018 competition had the opportunity to display their projects as part of the Rado showcase at designjunction 20th-23rd September during London Design Festival 2018.
designjunction is London’s leading design destination and provides a platform for cutting edge, contemporary design.
