Reshape present RESHAPE18 | SENSING MATERIALITIES competition. This year the annual competition extended its category, from the wearable technology design to the Consumer Goods design. Designer, makers, artists and all the talents are invited to submit their ideas and design proposals for the new Reshape challenge.

RESHAPE 18 | Sensing materialities focus on customized garments or products, promoting a healthy living for individuals on an everyday life.
This edition of RESHAPE 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 winner designers from Reshape competition will receive a financial award, the invitation to participate in the Reshape Forum and  Reshape exhibition.
The Reshape Forum will be host to the  IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solution event in Fira de Barcelona from the 16th to the 18th of October 2018.
