Olivetti Design Contest 2020-2021

For over a century, Olivetti places design on the same footing as innovation and experimentation.

This is demonstrated by its focus on promoting young talent and important experiences exchanged in the context of industrial design, also the precious contributions of artists and designers over the years, all based on the belief that aesthetics can be a fundamental driving force also for industry.

One example of this is the Olivetti Design Contest 2020-2021, reaching its forth edition, that attracts the major design institutes of international level which awards prizes to talented young people who are able to make an original contribution to design.
