It is an age of exploration.
Of resources, skills and ideas.
New tools are creating important innovations in art, architecture and design.
Adaptability, responsiveness, and customization are key values in this technological change.
Noumena Architecture, in collaboration with Advok communication, launches RESHAPE ® a competition of computational design and digital fabrication focused, in its first edition, on the theme of LIVING space.
RESHAPE ® is a platform for dialogue between visions and reality, dragging new ideas in the most cynical arena. The Market.
RESHAPE ® is a challenge for designers, architects and makers. We are looking for innovative projects, characterized by performances, manufactures and costs.
The topic of Living present several challenges that can be reshaped by designers.
Proposals can follow different directions, but all ideas have to present a clear fabrication strategy, taking into consideration economic and production aspect. All technics must be connected to the use of digital machines such milling, 3d printing and laser cut machine. The scale can vary from small to large size objects.
Is allow to present furnishing, lighting, decoration or tools elements.
We ask partecipants to be product designers and to design as makers.
Once the competition is over RESHAPE ® will become a brand and sell the best products trough an e-commerce platform.
RESHAPE ® is seeking designers and fabrication centers to create a network of ideas and production.
The ability of being connected to the growing network of FabLabs around the world will enable agility and flexibility in providing high competitiveness in the market and visibility for the designer.
So RESHAPE ® can became an opportunity for designers to express their ideas and for FabLabs to be part of a new fabrication community.
It is an age of exploration.
Be part of it.
