Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal grant call for entries from young design professionals

Montreal, Canada

Bureau du design - Ville de Montréal

Deadline: October 4, 2013

Montreal, Canada, 2013-08-11 -  Élaine Ayotte, Ville de Montréal Executive Committee member responsible for culture, heritage and design, is pleased to announce the sixth Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal Grant. Aimed at young design professionals, this annual grant is intended to recognize and promote the talent of emerging designers in Montréal and to advance their professional recognition. The 2013 winner, to be named in November, will receive a $10,000 grant for a professional development activity in one of the 34 cities of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, of which Montréal is a member as a City of Design.

“Designers are among Montréal’s most highly valued creative forces,” Ms. Ayotte said. “The city is proud to contribute to the professional development of our emerging designers, encouraging them to enrich their knowledge of urban design by drawing inspiration from other examples and practices internationally, through exchanges between designers from here and abroad.”

The Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal Grant rewards the talent of a Montréal designer with less than 10 years’ professional practice who has stood out due to the exceptional quality of his or her studies and work, as well as for particular interest in the city. The grant must be used for a professional development project, such as a study trip, a work internship or participation in a competition, design workshop, symposium or other pertinent activity for advancing a young design career.

The members of the 2013 jury are:

Martin Houle, Architect, Founder and Director, Kollectif;
Mario Mercier, Partner and Creative Director, orangetango;
Gilles Saucier, Partner and Architect, Saucier + Perrotte;
Nancy Shoiry, Senior Director, Service de la mise en valeur du territoire, Ville de Montréal.

A launch pad for designers
Recipients of the grant benefit from a promotional campaign designed to enhance their profile within the design community as well as in the eyes of the general public. Through the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, many of them receive invitations to show their work internationally, in the process growing their reach and reputation beyond Québec’s borders.

The previous recipients of the Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal Grant are:

Eugénie Manseau and Philippe Carreau (2012), industrial designers, Studio Dikini, for their project to explore various ways that street furniture is used, and new technologies, on a study trip to Seoul;

Guillaume Sasseville (2011), industrial designer, SSSVL, for his project Verre commun, a series of glasses and cups inspired by drinking glasses mass-produced in early 20th-century Montréal and designed in Graz, Austria;

Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat (2010), designers involved in interactive design and design environments, for their project to create a series of object prototypes in connection with the Open Design City Lab in Berlin;

Ying Gao (2009), university professor and fashion designer, for her project to design modular garments whose production is inspired directly by transformations in the urban environments of Berlin and Nagoya;

Philippe Lamarre (2008), graphic designer, publisher and co-founder of the multidisciplinary design studio Toxa, for his project to create a collaborative website on vernacular graphic design in Buenos Aires, Berlin and Montréal.
