On Tuesday, 4th June, the Lutetia Hotel in Paris hosted the prize-giving ceremony for the winners of our “Designing Fire” competition, organised in collaboration with our dealer Resistaff.

Students on the design course at the École nationale supérieure de création industrielle in Paris designed a new fireplace cladding in Stratistaff, an exclusive material created by Staff Décor.

The jury panel and criteria for “Designing fire”

Technical feasibility, marketing possibilities, quality of documents submitted, level of innovation but above all ability to reflect the values of the Palazzetti brand. These were the factors that guided the choice of the best projects presented by the students of ENSCI.

The jury panel for the best project was made up of experts:

  • Chiara Palazzetti, Palazzetti marketing director
  • Françoise Hugont, designer and head of ENSCI documentation and awards
  • Yves Biguais, owner of Staff Décor
  • Vanessa Chenaie, director of Ideat magazine
  • Ettore Mocchetti, director of AD Italia

A special prize was also awarded by Ruben Palazzetti, President of the company.
