Art 1. Contest Subject
The magazine Livingroome launch an international design competition, in cooperation with Messe Frankfurt - Ambiente Italia. Entries should present projects for :-
Accessories, object for travellers: technological, useful and emotional objects that independently on where we are will bring us in a place of memory. Objects addressed to the person and the place that will guest them.
Set for little travel kit’s peddling and retailing (made using bike, scooter, Apecar, electric car) that, not on gadget logic, creates a new design’s micro-distribution.
In order to promote the idea of a “Moving” design, that moves with people or reach them in the house, in the streets, in all life’s moments.
We live in a period of continuous movement due to study, work and love, of continuous information flux and each person travelling carry, dream or desire “emotional” objects.
It’s the theme of the Travel Sculptures of Bruno Munari, but also of electronic objects, personal objects and much more to chew on.
“Nomadism” should be considered in relationship to the person that will be reached by moving, emotional objects. The revival of retailers using Apecar, rickshaw and other little means of transport, that even if produced by large retailer deny it with the aim of taking back districts.
