One of the most important categories in the various editions of the Award, it is being presented once again this year with the intention of receiving projects that increasingly meet the objectives of the competition.
We know how valuable recycling is when large quantities of used material are reintroduced into the production chain, which is why we need to exploit the huge amount of plastic waste generated in our urban and public life.
This category aims to create an innovative and unexplored virtuous circle to reward our local communities with recycling projects from Plastic Waste collected from cities and public spaces.
For this category, which is the only one of this year’s categories to use only recycled plastic, creatives will have to design prototypes and/or works for use in urban and public spaces: guard rails, traffic bollards, garden benches, playground equipment, waiting room seating, school desks, desks, blackboards, community beds, hospital furniture, bus and train seats, bus shelters, kiosks, stadium and arena seats, indoor and outdoor sports structures and equipment, flooring and cladding, …
Designers must propose projects that are a synergy of durability, ergonomics, accessibility, safety, while creating beauty and added value for urban and public spaces.
Only prototypes, mock-ups and/or existing products are allowed.
It is possible to apply with projects already existing and/or submitted to other competitions.
