MMT by Design is a platform for young local designers and comes as an exciting collaboration between Mike Made This + Vega School. It is a competition that gives young design students a platform to showcase their work and gain much-needed experience in the furniture manufacturing environment.

For this year’s competition, 2nd + 3rd-year design students at Vega were challenged to conceptualise and build a working prototype of a light, showcasing a unique approach to lighting design. Students could choose to create any type of lighting solution, be it ceiling fixtures, wall fixtures, indirect lighting, floor fixtures or even table fixtures. They had to keep various factors in mind, including cost efficiency, sustainability and environmental friendliness, market appeal, and ease of manufacture.

Of the 50 entries, 5 finalists were selected. Now it is up to the public to vote for who you think deserves the title as MMT by Design Designer of 2017. The winner and runners up will receive prizes to the value of R15 000. The winner will also have their design manufactured by the MMT team for an exclusive retail platform. But there is more… you can also win some awesome spot prizes available to voters throughout the competition. Winners will be announced at each lucky draw. So get clicking and vote for your favourites!
