Ferrero and Desall



New interior design contest on Ferrero and Desall invite the community of creatives to suggest an innovative and human-oriented furnishing solution, to turn the working break into an even more relaxing and pleasant moment.

Company description

The history of the Ferrero Group is a story of success in its third generation, in which the development of a multinational company perfectly combines with the past, present and future of a tenacious Piedmontese family.
The Ferrero family was the first Italian manufacturer after World War II to open production sites and offices abroad in the confectionary sector, turning the Company into a truly international Group.
Today, Giovanni Ferrero continues to run the Company successfully, aiming to reach goals that are even more ambitious and keeping alive the company inspiration and social motivation that was so strongly shared with his father Michele and his brother. Today, just like yesterday, it is a structure based on solid family values.

Ferrero invites the international community of Desall to suggest a new interior design project to furnish the rooms dedicated to the employees working on the production line, creating a space dedicated to relax, break and nourishing relationships among colleagues, where everyone may find the ideal place to refresh, relax and possibly have a snack before going back to work, with a project that may fully reflect the founding values of the group.


For the correct realisation of your proposals, keep into consideration the following guidelines:

Objective of the contest: your project shall include several furnishing elements and solutions able to adapt to the various dimensions of the relax rooms available inside the Ferrero facilities, in particular those rooms located next to the production lines, reserved to the line workers. The rooms shall contribute to improve the working environment, where every line worker might feel welcome and at ease, in a lively and cosy context.

Values to convey: the furnishing solution you are going to suggest shall reflect the Ferrero values and identity, that considers loyalty and trust, respect and responsibility, integrity and moderation, the founding values of the group. In addition, other very important values include passion for quality, research and innovation, that were embodied by a very successful entrepreneurial experience. For more information, you may refer to the institutional websites of the group.
