Waterproof, the International Design Competition under 40, organizes an open day of study for customized advices. The event will take place on October 5th, 2017, from 11 am to 6 pm, at the headquarters of Confindustria Venezia - Area metropolitana di Venezia e Rovigo, in the Parco Scientifico-Tecnologico Vega, Lybra building. The day will consist of one-to-one dialogues with the project partners: Eurofibre, Fiel, Lunardelli, Oikos, Sacaim, and Zintek.
During the event, applicants may individually confront companies’ technicians in order to experience products and to deepen production methods and installations. There will be the possibility to indicate own innovative hypotheses of solution for an operating comparison about the project idea. Product samples will be provided, if applicable. Each partner will be equipped with a desk. Competitors may have a private conversation to ask explanations and advices with each of them. If anyone would like to visit productive factories of the partners, they will be able to schedule a date during the interview.
The next day we recommend to visit Palazzo Ca’ Tron's venue in Venice, as it is freely accessible and open to the public.
Waterproof aims at creating a link between the world of design and production, and stimulate innovative solutions that start from the knowledge and from the eventual customization of materials used for the project. The design theme is Palazzo Ca’ Tron, location of undergraduate degree program in Planning and Urban Design at Università Iuav in Venice, located in the historic center of the city.
Dialogue with partner companies, discovering and working on their production processes, realizing a prototype, understanding if things really work, is the goal we hope each competitor picks up and that is what will be most appreciated. The contest begins from these considerations, towards engaging dialogue between professionals and some of the historic representative companies of Made in Italy.
In particular of the Venetian productive area, with the aim of meeting the know-how of companies and innovative ideas.
