EVERY YEAR, RESHAPE LAUNCHES THE RESHAPE DESIGN COMPETITION, FOCUSED ON WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY AND DIGITAL FABRICATION. THE CONTEST CALLS DESIGNERS, FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD, TO EXPLORE THE IMPACT OF DESIGN RULES ON OUR DAILY LIFE AND ON OUR BODY FOR THE NEXT FUTURE.
RESHAPE IV edition is split into two categories: wearables and consumer goods. We seek for a wide variety of applications, spanning from fashion tech and prosthetics solutions negotiating with our own bodies, to intelligent products assisting us in our daily activities. RESHAPE 18 challenges makers and designers to present their innovative proposals sharing their solutions among the distributed frame of research and application. State-of-the-art fabrication techniques are required to facilitate the creation of tailored products that tackle daily problematics, such as respiration, contamination, harmful body postures, disabilities, and stress with the intention to improve the quality of our lives.
RESHAPE 18 seeks innovative design solutions, proven by digitally fabricated prototypes. Interdisciplinary processes, experimental approaches, and innovative design strategies are required to become the new pioneers of this digital era.
The Reshape Honorary Mentions and Nominations winners will have the opportunity to pitch their project at the Reshape Forum Audience. The Reshape winner will be announced at the AWARD CEREMONY, with up to 1000 € of financial support.
The jury members will select up to 10 projects per categories, for prize consideration. From the selected projects will be decided three prize-winning projects and up to seven honorary mentions, which will be included in the online platform of RESHAPE and will be invited to participate in the RESHAPE FORUM.
