Justin Donnelly was selected to participate in Wanted Design's Lanch Pad Competition, presented by Design Milk and Design within Reach. Launch Pad is an international exhibition dedicated to independent designers and small companies seeking for a manufacturer for their new products. Inspired by the worldwide famous Satellite at the Salone del Mobile, the Launch Pad aims for a set of successful launches, where products find their markets. At Wanted, Justin presented his flatpack, modular shelving system, WAVE, to a jury of esteemed international design professionals including Marva Griffin Wilshire, Founder of Salone del Mobile, Milano and Curator and International Press Director of SaloneSatellite; Giulio Cappellini, Creative Director, Cappellini; Massimo Zanatta, Director of the Marangoni Design Campus; Jaime Derringer, Founder and Executive Editor of Design Milk; and Noah Schwarz, Director of Merchandising, Design Within Reach. Based on the response, Justin was able to license the design for production and international distribution.
