At an exclusive event held in the Light Tunnel, Kings Cross on Thursday 19 September, Rado and Designjunction announced the winner of the third edition of the Rado Star Prize UK.

The Judges’ Winner prize was awarded to Huw Evans, who impressed the judges with his Concertina collection.

Evans, who studies 3D Design at  Plymouth University, received £5,000 and a Rado True Thinline watch as a prize for the winning project.

Concertina was selected from a shortlist of ten designs, with each entry responding to the theme ‘Re:Imagine’.

This year’s motto explores the different ways in which design can enrich and enhance life: by evolving existing product forms through materials, function, technology, end use or even reuse.
