Press Release: In its third year, the Séura Studio Series Design Competition seeks the next winning designer to add to the portfolio of Séura Lighted Mirror design collections. Hospitality professionals are asked to get creative, get inspired and submit their lighted mirror etching designs.
Designers can choose their mirror shape and size, and create an artistic design to be etched into the mirror glass. Séura’s proprietary +Color feature can be added to the design, allowing designers to apply colors in exact etched locations on the mirror. The competition is open to all hospitality professionals and designers, and entrants are encouraged to submit multiple designs.
“We’re privileged to offer this contest that recognizes designers and highlights their creativity,” said Gretchen Gilbertson, Séura Co-founder and CEO. “Giving designers the freedom to create their own etch and incorporate color brings out beautiful, unique pieces of art. We’re excited to see the entries from this year’s competition.”
A judging panel of design and industry professionals will score submissions based on uniqueness, style, and manufacturability. The winner will receive a $1,000 travel voucher to attend BDNY 2018 trade fair in New York City where the winner will be announced to the public on November 11. The winning design will be on display at BDNY 2018 in Séura’s booth 1821. In partnership with NEWH, Séura will be giving a $3,000 scholarship in the winner’s name to a deserving design student, which will be announced at the Power Players Breakfast at BDNY 2018.

In addition, Séura will manufacture and send the winner their Lighted Mirror design. A collection of designs will be built around the winning design, which will become part of Séura’s Lighted Mirror portfolio and available for specification. The designer will receive full attribution and the collection will be featured in Séura’s digital catalog and on
