 SUBMISSION DEADLINE CLOSED!
(7th of SEPTEMBER 2018)

BRIEF

OUR BODY IS A SOPHISTICATED MECHANISM.

It has evolved and adapted to change through centuries of progression to become a dynamic entity responding to complex stimuli. Nevertheless, the rise of technology is disrupting the natural course of evolution, taking us towards a new unpredictable future.

In this digital age, our body is being exposed to unnatural hazards, such as environmental pollution, radiation and widespread disease. We need to learn how to navigate this rapidly changing environment. Ironically, technology plays a dual role, in both cause and cure. Scientists predict that many future threats to humanity will result from unprecedented technological evolution. In parallel, as technology progresses, so does our ability to develop and apply new solutions.

Additive manufacturing techniques, synthetic biology, custom materials and ubiquitous computing allow the emergence of new products, customized to the needs of individuals and  societies.

CATEGORIES

Noumena and IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions present the IV edition of RESHAPE competition, targeted at emerging designers from all over the world.
This edition is split into two categories: Wearables and Product design.

The wearable technology category challenges designers to propose a new garment solution, relevant to the environment and human health.
We seek a wide variety of proposals, from innovative materials and wearable electronics applications to prosthetics solutions, negotiating with our body’s needs.
We are looking for wearable products that tackle daily problems, such as respiration, contamination, harmful body postures, disabilities, and stress.
The submitted project needs to present a clear prototyping methodology involving digital manufacturing technologies. Interdisciplinary processes, experimental approaches and innovative design production strategies are required to become the new pioneers of this digital age.

The Product design category is addressed to all designers interested in product solution, that promotes well-being. In a wide range of applications, from sports goods to medical devices.
Reshape challenges makers and designers to present a product able to negotiate the forces shaping our environments; monitoring, sensing, and interacting with the physical and digital world.
Proposals must take into consideration the social impact of their production and consumption cycle.
Interdisciplinary processes, experimental approaches and innovative design production strategies are required to become the pioneers of the digital age.

CRITERIA

CONCEPT IDEA


Significant attention will be given to those projects that reconsider the idea of design in an inventive and experimental way, establishing interconnections between users, environment and data.

PROTOTYPE FABRICABILITY


Reshape aims to merge both design and making in a complete creative process. Therefore, each design approach must present a clear fabrication strategy, materializing design solutions with tools that are available in a Fab Lab or Maker Space.

DISSEMINATION STRATEGY


A dissemination plan needs to be elaborated.In order to visualize your idea in a potential market, is crucial to set a dissemination strategy, proposing convincing scenarios of implementation for each proposal.
