Hublot Design Prize 2016


Following the success of the first edition of the Hublot Design Prize in 2015, Hublot is happy to be renewing this artistic experience during this special year celebrating 10 years of the All Black design. In the heart of London, at LVMH House, Hublot has decided to mark this 10th anniversary by looking to the future and giving the talented designers of tomorrow a chance to make a name for themselves. The goal of the Hublot Design Prize is to enable these young designers to assert themselves through their creations, to expose them to a wider public. The prize will thus be awarded to the designer who, like Hublot timepieces, stands out via their audacity and creativity. This was the case for the Big-Game collective (Augustin Scott de Martinville, Elric Petit and Grégoire Jeanmonod) and Daniel Rybakken, the ex-aequo winners of the 2015 edition.

The designers will also need to convince the Jury, made up of well-known and world-renowned experts in the field of contemporary design: Pierre Keller, Lapo Elkann, Ronan Bouroullec, Marva Griffin Wilshire and Simon de Pury.

As members of the Jury for this design competition, they were all in London on 30 April to launch the second edition of the Hublot Design Prize.

The goal of the competition will thus be to award the Hublot Design Prize to a young independent designer. After careful examination of the applications, debate and discussion, the Jury will award its “special prize” at the end of the summer. The following stage will take place at the Hublot Manufacture in Nyon and the prize will be presented to the winner before the Christmas holidays.
