Focus on the next generation

“Everything is born from a love of wood”

Porada strongly believes in educating the next generation of designers and giving them the opportunity to collaborate with the company. This is the aim of the annual Porada International Design Award which, now in its eleventh year, is open to both students and professionals.
The competition enables designers to enter into direct contact with the company and Porada to examine creative and innovative ideas and solutions and evaluate which designs can be incorporated into the Porada collections.
