‘Explore new design territories in the context of 3D printing technology’ - Philippe Starck

Are you a budding design student who would love to see your design produced as a 3D object? Would you relish the chance to show industry experts your portfolio?

The design team here at mydeco devised this competition with Philippe Starck while meeting at his Paris office. We wanted to launch a competition that would break the current boundaries of design and creativity and would give young talent the opportunity to explore new ways of thinking and making.

Rapid prototyping technology provides the opportunity to cross the current limits of design, translating almost every concept into a three-dimensional form.

To win this competition you will have to create an innovative, intelligent and practical object that is inspired by the new opportunities created by three dimensional stereo lithographic technology.

The competition is open to design students worldwide, between the ages of 18 and 25.

What is the prize?

The winner will see his/her 3D model made into a prototype using the stereolithographic process with MGX. He/She will also win £1,000 cash and have the opportunity to get an article with Philippe Starck in IDFX magazine.

With this mydeco/Philippe Starck/MGX award, we would love to recognise and reward promising creativity and flair.

One of our main objectives at mydeco is to promote new talents and bridge the gap between young designers and the industry. Having built strong relationship with over 600 retailers, we can facilitate this process and provoke great opportunities.
