Design of infinite objects!

Call for sustainable design, for young professionals!

We live in a frantic world, full of changes. As designers we advocate that the spirit of improvement always prevails. That is why this call exists, to change the throwaway culture. We believe that design has a lot to say, that is why, if you think you can “move back” to the consumption mode of the past and redesign products for eternity.

These are the opportunities that Toca Madera offers to the 30 selected!
