The workshop

Bruni Glass Design Award is the first big 8-month university workshop that transforms the aspirations of young designers into a real job opportunity: a highly formative experience.

Politecnico di Milano

The contest stimulates competition among students and improves their knowledge of materials and technologies that are often unknown. Quoting Albert Einstein: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, imagination embraces the world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." ... after all I believe that these words are stimulating and clarify our role as Designers and as Professors.

Professor Martino Zinzone
