Join us in welcoming your Official 2017 Launch Pad Partner: Schiavello.
April 5th, 2017
Schiavello partners with Launch Pad to celebrate more than a decade of fostering design across the Asia Pacific region. Offering emerging designers unprecedented exposure and the invaluable opportunity to have their prototype taken through to production, the Launch Pad programme provides unique access to manufacturing, product development, marketing and business for the A+D community. In addition to an ongoing mentorship programme with a network of industry experts, the winner of Launch Pad will receive access to some of the best minds across manufacturing, marketing, retail and public relations.
Marketing & Design Director, Anton Schiavello said of the initiative:
“In the spirit of Schiavello’s rich culture of supporting designers in Australia, Schiavello is excited to be apart of Launch Pad, and aligning our 50+ years of creative leadership and vision with a new generation of Australian designers. Our collective design story extends internationally to Singapore and very soon Beijing, and I’m excited to also collaborate with talent nurtured throughout Asia Pacific. ”
Joining Launch Pad as 2017’s Official Partner represents merely a fraction of Schiavello’s 50-year legacy that has seen the company grow from humble beginnings in 1966 to present-day powerhouse – all along the way supporting the genius and dynamism of Asia Pacific A+D. From generation to generation of end-users, the Schiavello success story is one based on celebrating diverse experience, expert knowledge and an unbridled, unflagging commitment to developing intelligent, inspiring, ecological and resilient solutions for the distinct personality of any space.
As we look back over the 50-year Schiavello story, perhaps the lasting impression is more groundbreaking than we ever expected. Schiavello means a promise: a promise to fit the working tools to the body – not the body to the tools. This human-centred design philosophy is the result of a rigorous process of client workshops and customised prototyping, where live pilots involving the prototype are trialed and workshopped across the entire period of the development.
Schiavello’s strong client relationships, and the manufacturing capabilities and resources of their 70,000sqm manufacturing plant in Melbourne, allows the design team to turn around prototypes, collect feedback in workshops and update the prototypes for sign-off significantly faster than the market average. Due to these advanced capacities, their ongoing committment to fostering the next generation of A+D across Australia, and their teams’ sustained pledge to help elevate local design onto the global stage, we could not be more pleased to welcome Schiavello as Launch Pad’s Official 2017 Partner to help launch the careers of numerous Australian design greats. Schiavello’s unique mentorship programme as part of the Launch Pad winners’ package has attracted the support and personal involvement of notable industry figures, local and international, as well as connecting finalists directly with an exceptional network of commercial suppliers, manufacturers, retailers, consumers and media.
Throughout the remainder of 2017 Schiavello continues to embrace the winds of change. Now with outposts in Malaysia and China, the company continues to evolve alongside Asia Pacific and its growing need for thoughtful design. This is your chance to be a part of that story. ENTER NOW!
