"19th Pure Talents Contest"

Design competition for young designers

The intention

The Pure Talents Contest is amongst the most highly recognised international design competitions for up-and-coming designers. Hosted by one of the world's most important interior design trade fairs, it is the platform on which emerging talent can showcase their products to a large audience and make their first contacts in the industry.

In the past 18 years, a total of 502 products by 555 designers from all over the world have been presented at imm cologne as part of the contest exhibition. Many of these products have found their way into the collections of well-known manufacturers. Up to 20 current pieces of work by design students and young designers from all over the world will be nominated. From this selection, the three most talented international up-and-coming designers in 2022 will be chosen by the jury.
