Vibram Rubber Skin Attitude

Product design contest

by Jacopo Zanon

New product design contest on in the second phase of the contest Vibram and Desall invite you to design a new line of backpacks, bags and other containers equipped for mobility, further developing the concept of flexibility of use, foldability and mechanical expansion of the Luxury Rubber.

In the previous phase of the contest, Vibram addressed the community of designers to research ideas and concepts of products realised with the revolutionary Luxury Rubber “leatherette rubber sheet”.
In this second phase, once again open to all, you are invited to develop the product design of a new product branded by Vibram belonging to backpacks, bags and other containers equipped for daily and/or performative mobility, further developing the concept proposed by Antonino Ciuro, winner of the previous phase, that consists in the use of a folding system inspired to the Japanese origami culture, that enables the foldability and expansion of the Luxury Rubber which was applied, in that project, to a backpack.
In addition to the cash award, the winner of the second phase of the contest will be granted the chance to develop his/her own project, taking part in a workshop to be held at the Vibram Technological Center in Guangzhou, China.
