In view of the current health crisis, the organization of the Le Groupe de Gainerie 91 competition has reconsidered the back-planning of this 7th edition of its Design Competition. Candidates have until April 30, 2020 to submit their file to luxury professionals, and try to win one of the three prizes made available.
Since 1967, the Gainerie 91 Group has been manufacturing boxes and displays for the biggest names in French and international wines and spirits, perfumery, watchmaking and jewelry (Chaumet, Chanel, Harry Winston, Louis Vuitton and Van Cleef & Arpels).
This year, the candidates, still students, have to create a packaging that respects the codes of luxury. Their projects will therefore combine authenticity, know-how, personalization and eco-responsibility in order to imagine the next setting for one of the competition’s categories: watchmaking & jewelry, perfumes & cosmetics and wines & spirits. Productions which must be accessible and reproducible thanks to the choice of the right materials and suitable manufacturing techniques.
In order to boost creativity, the Gainerie 91 Group will award three prizes,
– First prize: 2000 euros or a MacBook Pro
– Second prize: 800 euros or a FlashForge PRO 3D printer
– Third prize: 400 euros or a Wacom graphics tablet
A “Audience Award” will also be awarded this year, endowed with 300 euros or a Moleskine Smart Writing set.

In 2019, Meana Oval was crowned. In order to respond to the theme “When luxury is taken in the game”, the student from ENSA Limoges proposed Jacob , a make-up palette with double opening, giving it a playful aspect. The game takes place in the manipulation of the case: by opening it on the right side, you have access to two colors of eyeshadows as well as two small brushes. On the left side are two other colors as well as a mirror.
