The article presents information about the five finalists of the Young Designers Collection award. It is always interesting to see young designers' work because it provides the roots of their portfolios and the starting point for future design projects. The work also represents the culmination of years of intrepid study focused on space, function, construction and the best use of materials. Innovation is usually the first element that attracts customers to products, but frustratingly it is also often the hardest element to develop in the right materials at the right price. Such is the challenge of creating an original design with the commerciality to make it a success in the marketplace.
