1st of August till 30th of september 2020
Please read trough this guideline carefully.
01 THEME - NEW MATERIAL
Do you want to be part of innovating the transportation industry? The transportation industry is changing immensely. Electric car sharing, commercial spacecraft, and interactive vehicles are just a few examples of areas where young design talent is needed. We are looking for material experiments that could change how our cars, trains, airplanes or even spaceships look (and feel) the future.
We see three important design orientations that we are especially interested in:
Sustainability, Biomimicry and Smart Material Design. Your material innovation can be about how it is produced, the material itself, or your vision of the application for your material. If you think your material might be too sci-fi, we are probably interested!
02 HOST - KHALIL Design
Khalil Design is one of the most important design agencies in Germany when it comes to designing for the future transportation industry. Most of the designs will not be on the market until 10 - 20 years later. This is the first international design competition organized by us. We like to give students the opportunity to present their work to some of the biggest brands out there. For that purpose we are organizing an exposition, amongst our own projects we will showcase work from students.
