Every year, Elisava and La Capell join forces to promote and encourage emerging design in the local community. Have you heard about this collaboration? Well, if you are an Elisava student or Alumni Bold and you want to market a product that you have self-published, you can submit your proposal to the Elisava and La Capell call for proposals and, in this way, give your work a profitable visibility.
You may wonder about the transcendence of this joint proposal, but we can tell you that, in the current context, this collaboration between Elisava and the Cooperative of Architects Jordi Capell is a unique opportunity to leave the university sphere behind and become part of the world of design. In a competitive society with few spaces of visibility for young talent, this process is key for emerging design to have the possibility of being exposed in the showcase of La Capell and to benefit from its important logistical support. It also means the pride of having your product share space with pieces by great designers such as Miguel Milá, Alvar Aalto, the Eames, Josep Torres Clavé or Eero Saarinen, in the shop that La Capell has in the Plaça Nova in Barcelona, just in front of the Cathedral, as well as in its online shop.
On the other hand, the call with La Capell also serves as the driving force behind a project. An idea can be excellent, but it often needs a final push to get it off the drawing board. This call can be a turning point to accelerate the design and production processes of many projects, and the fruit of your work can finally see the light of day.
If you have the chance, take a look at the Elisava Alumni products on the La Capell website (there are almost a hundred). Among some of the projects on display there, we can talk about the fun Volto accessories by Mireia Rius, the splendid jewellery by Naida Castell, the Mantis 65 stool by Roberto Méndez or the Cloud vases by Ferrán Cano. Who knows, maybe you're next.
Check the rules below, where you will find all the information on how to apply.
Follow us on the IG of Elisava Alumni and in the next few days you will see examples of designers and products selected in previous editions.
Check News from the Elisava Alumni APP and we will inform you about the Self-production Session where an expert will give you valuable advice to finalise your proposal.
You have time until 30 May to present your product and fulfil your dream of marketing it together with great designers!
