All are leading professionals with extensive experience in various areas of design and they will be facing the difficult task of selecting the best of the designs submitted to feature in Feria Hábitat Valencia's young creatives show.
The deadline for submitting designs is 23rd May, after which date the jury will meet and review all the submissions, which will come from young design studios, new designers, freelancers, galleries, design schools and manufacturers under five years old - all candidates to join the nude universe.
nude, the New Design Show, is the interiors industry's creative nerve centre at the Valencia trade fair. A space where young designers come into contact with the industry's manufacturers and have a great opportunity to carve themselves a niche in the professional world.
nude will be taking place against the backdrop of Feria Hábitat Valencia, Spain's foremost showcase for decor and interior design and the only international fair of its type in Spain. It runs from 18th to 22nd September.
