DEZEEN – by Lizzie Crook
Dezeen is partnering with Rossana Orlandi to challenge designers to develop new ways of recycling and reusing plastic with the Ro Plastic Prize.
Now open for entries, the competition forms part of Orlandi’s Guiltless Plastic initiative, which exists to champion the responsible use of the material.
Dezeen revealed that Orlandi, one of the world’s most influential design gallerists and curators, was launching the prize during Milan design week last year. Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs will be on the prize jury.
The prize jury consists of Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs, alongside Philip Battin, Giulio Bonazzi, Giulio Cappellini, Li Edelkoort, Cristina Gabetti, Arthur Huang, Paul Rose, Ivy Ross, Marva Griffin Wilshire and Cuiming Yuan.
