Deuren's design a door competition
Deuren are on the lookout for a budding young designer to plan the creation of an all-new internal door set. By doing so, Deuren aim to stimulate aspiring designers’ creative flair, whilst also helping them develop their design skills. With the results of the competition, Deuren will go forward and put the winning door into production and use the chosen one as a featured limited edition. The prospective door will match Deuren’s respectable and eco-friendly credentials, as students are encouraged to focus on natural materials such as timber, copper, aluminium, leather, glass etc, whilst also taking into consideration of security, durability and insulation. For this new competition, we are happy to announce we have teamed up with UCLan University, in hope of finding our next beautiful bespoke door design and a talented future designer. Good luck to all applicants and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful ideas.
