Wednesday, at Mirage Project Point in Milan, the jury of the RESTILE contest has met in order to decide the winner and to prepare the ranking. Given the quality of all the projects submitted the choice has not been easy and the commission took all morning and into lunch to decide. At the end, nevertheless, a decision had to be made. As said, the projects have been evaluated by the criteria of creativity, feasibility and innovation.
Here you are the ranking:
1. Istvan Bojte and Gaia Bottari with the project “Mezzo Tinto”
The commission considered this project as the best interpretation of the three choice criteria, appreciating in particular the superficial materic pattern.
2. Arabella Guidott0 with the project “Sfumate Geometrie”
The jury believed this project deserved to be awarded because of the strong relation between the materic and the graphic component, arriving to create a pattern appreciable both to the touch and to the sight.
3. Javier Deferrari and Lavinia Modesti with the project “Versatile”
This Project was remarkable because of the reinterpretation of a classic element in ceramic, the Hexagon, in a contemporary view and for an innovative and “versatile” decoration.
Five honorable mentions:
Daniele Canuti with the project “til3d”
The jury appreciated the reinterpretation of the surface, in line with the spirit and the values of Mirage.

The project deservs a special mention because of the feasibility to produce and the commerciability on some Mirage’s markets.
Filippo Bombace with the project “Line collection”
Special mention for the original integration and valorization of the “joint”, which becomes a decorative element and is no longer a disturb element.
