Intreccincantiere number 9: here are the winners of the creative competition

A “woven” challenge. Intreccincantiere number 9, the competition for young designers devised by Manifattura di Domodossola in collaboration with Lineapelle and the Banco BPM Group, has come to an end. As every year, under-30 students from fashion and design schools from all over the world are called upon to create artefacts using weaving, a skilful technique so dear to the Piedmontese company. Objective of the competition? “To create an attractive and innovative product using the products of the Polli family company”, as Manifattura di Domodossola, which recently celebrated its 110th anniversary, explained in a note.

Intreccincantiere number 9

Intreccincantiere number 9 reinforced the company’s recent collaboration with the Bagatti Valsecchi House-Museum in the heart of Milan. The competitors’ prototypes had to be inspired by the historic building. Not an easy theme, that put the young talents to the test. “The partnership between fashion and art has thus been consolidated at Intreccincantiere 9, giving the students the chance to unleash all their creativity”, the company explained in a note. And it is precisely at the same museum that the final award ceremony will be held in October. An occasion to celebrate the winners and to mark 110 years of Manifattura di Domodossola.

The Winners

The prize for the Interior Design section was won by Ludovica Veneziano (Accademia Euromediterranea Harim, Catania). For Footwear, the winner was Alessia De Mattia (IUAD Academy, Naples).
