Design Theme

Desire Design competition poster"Among the mass production objects, cars are the most diffused, the most expensive,
the most technologically advanced and above all still the most desired.

What makes a car desirable? What makes a vehicle the actual platform of our dreams?
What makes car design a promise for a forthcoming future?"

Desire Design is a competition project that aims at rediscovering the fundamentals of
car design. Participants are requested to submit a design project of a car with a strong
emotional impact
.

Any dimension or typology of cars are accepted as long as they
represent a vehicle that people could dream about.

The aim is to find out what makes a car a living object with a soul out of a mechanic
components assemblage. The project should express a good balance of proportions,
graphics, materials and technology, ideally creating an object which is able to move
passions and desires
.

format (max 2 pages) or digital file in Word format; Min 2 Max 6 boards of project in A3 format or
