Bentley launches furniture design competition for students

As part of the 100-year anniversary of Bentley Motors next year, the company is launching a global competition asking participants to create an exclusive furniture design for the centenary celebrations.


The winning design will be launched at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy, in 2019 alongside the Bentley Home collection, and a limited edition of 100 pieces will be made and sold globally.

Participants are challenged to design a single piece of furniture or lighting to celebrate this occasion. As the official brief reports, “the designs should reflect Bentley’s design DNA, use of exquisite materials and project a vision for the future. The piece should be desirable, iconic and commercially viable as a single piece of furniture and suitable for any home or office around the world.”
