UK, London — 21st December, 2021
Annabella Nassetti, senior interior designer and Global Chair of the G100 Design and Lifestyle, announces the first global Award to support young female designers.
The G100 Design & Lifestyle is a Chapter of the global G100 movement. The latter is a non-profit global organization founded by Dr. Harbeen Arora. It’s a group of 100 Global Women Leaders, a Think Tank of Visionary Women, guided by 100 Global Chairs. It is impacting Millions.
G100 is an eminent club of top 100 powerful women who are leaders in their own field and have a vision for the future. It comprises a league of luminaries of eminence and excellence including Nobel Laureates, former Heads of States, Ministers, Businesswomen, Corporate and Community Leaders – all joined in a pact of purpose to create massive opportunities for women worldwide.
The organisation inspired Annabella Nassetti and Fiorenza Mella to launch their first Award program to honor the most innovative design project created by a young designer. The contest is open to students and graduates in Design, Product Design, Interior Design, Architecture, and Engineering.
Along with celebrating product design innovation the goal is to help support young talents by creating real business opportunities.
Annabella Nassetti said: “I’m thrilled to be inspired by this global organization and to have the chance to use my creativity in a different way. Together with Fiorenza Mella, I created AssiaX, an initiative that will oversee the development of the winning design from concept to production including royalties compensation. The destination will be eighteen 260mᶟ foyers at one of Milan’s top Eco-conscious 700 units 66,000m2 residential development.” She concluded: “In this particular case, for example, we initially sought a real application and then we made arrangements for manufacturing and installing the winning design.
