The winners of the 14th edition of the Bruni Glass Design Award (BGDA), a biannual workshop/competition among students at top international design schools to help envision the future of packaging, were recently announced.
Commencing with the exhibition of the 20 finalist’s designs and public voting held at the Bruni Glass booth at the SIMEI/Drinktec Show in Munich, Germany, The BGDA offers young designers an unparalleled experience, allowing them to transform their aspirations into real working opportunities. The workshop/competition, entirely financed by Bruni Glass, lasted for 8 months and was divided into three main sessions, in which projects are submitted and modified until they reach the final model.
