Would you like to have your creativity immortalized on a chic item of furniture?
Get your imagination going, create a piece of artwork and

sixay, based in Hungary, is an international furniture brand known for its timeless and carefully crafted pieces of solid wood furniture. Currently, our
main markets are Germany and Switzerland. For more details please visit www.sixay.com/en.
The first competition was announced in October 2013 and was directed at domestic graphic artists. We asked entrants to design pieces of artwork to
be laser engraved into some of our items, restyling them to be even more unique for special occasions. Being stunned by enormous success, we did
not have to think long before launching a similar competition for pre- and primary school children. The best pieces, both vector graphic images and
freehand drawings, were on display at the 2014 international furniture show in Cologne (IMM Cologne) and several smaller shows organised by our
retail partners in Germany. We started a dedicated website enabling everyone to create his or her custom piece in a few steps.

With the next big industry event, the 2015 international trade show in Cologne (January 19-25, 2015) upon us we are thrilled to announce our second
design competition for graphic artists, enthusiastic amateurs and children.
We ask you to devise ways to adorn our OTTO stools and seats, winners of the MAK (Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna) design award, with your design
turning these practical pieces into special gift items e.g. for birthdays, weddings, housewarming parties, baby welcome parties, etc.
Please submit your artwork in 3 different sizes each (OTTO 1, 2 and 3), prepared either as a vector graphic image or a freehand drawing. Please note
that due to technical reasons only monochrome images/drawings will be considered. Each entrant may submit up to 5×3 pieces of artwork.
Entrants submitting the 10 best ideas will be awarded an OTTO1 stool each, made from elm and featuring a natural linoleum cover laser engraved with
their respective designs. Seven of the 10 winners will be picked in-house, while another three will be decided by public vote. The 10 winning designs
will be displayed, and their designers mentioned, in Cologne at one of the world’s most important furniture industry and design events.
The 7 designs picked in-house will be published in our catalogue and their designers will receive a royalty of 5 euro per item of furniture sold featuring
