RESHAPE Wearable Competition – Call for projects

150120_press-01-01

We are happy to announce our contribution as media partners to the RESHAPE 15 | wearable technology competition. RESHAPE 15 is the second edition of a competition organised by the young and innovative design firm Noumena Architecture, working at the intersection of computational tools and digital fabrication. Here is the brief of the competition :

 

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 aesthetic is emerging. Reshape focuses on the definition of this language, proposing a new challenge to makers and designers: RESHAPE15 | wearable technology competition.

Proposals can focus on the possibilities of wearable technology without any design limitation.

 

We have to say that we especially appreciate designers who organise competitions to make things move forward. And why that? Because organising a competition means letting big things happen. It means creating a process that will be able to generate design. It is procedural thinking, just like in a coworking space.

Deadline for submitting a proposal is 31st of May 2015. More information > www.youreshape.com/reshape15-wearable-competition/
