Reshape 15, wearable technology competition

concorso di design

registrazione e consegna entro il 31 maggio 2015

Noumena is very pleased to announce the launch of Reshape 15, a competition of computational design and digital fabrication focused, in this edition, on the topic of wearable technology.

Today, disciplines as programming and electronics become highly transversal, blurring old boundaries and merging different fields of knowledge. Fashion has been already highly affected by this radical change. Therefore, clothes, shoes and other accessories can now incorporate elements of hardware and software, generating a peculiar mix between fashion and computation that is incredibly fertile and inspiring.

Data becomes Beauty, Interaction becomes Emotion. As a result, a new esthetic is emerging. Reshape focuses on the definition of this language, proposing with this competition, a new challenge for makers and designers.

Reshape challenge designers to explore the possibles evolutions of wearable technology without any limitation. Nonetheless, all submissions must reflect the mission of Reshape: merging ideas with fabrication processes and market viabilities. Fabrication strategies must be clear and reasonable, demonstrating a real control of the production process.

The total prize is 2700 €, which will be distributed among the first, second and third winner accordingly.

  • 1st prize 1500 €
  • 2nd prize 700 €
  • 3rd prize 500 €
