Third Maier S. Coop. Design Competition
The "Third Maier S. Coop. Design Competition," an international competition for the design of vehicle interiors organised by the company Maier S. Coop with the collaboration of Mondragon, the Innovation and Financial Promotion Department of the Bizkaia Regional Government and Eide (the Basque Association of Industrial Designers), has become a major Design Competition, with substantial prize money and extensive media coverage.
The Competition Organizing Committee encourages designers, engineers, students, amateurs and professionals alike, to take part in this year's competition, presenting their creative and innovative proposals for vehicle interiors.
The aim of the competition is to award prizes for projects consisting of ideas for new products, focusing on vehicle interiors, more specifically for doors, with innovations affecting their opening and closing lifetime and other uses. These new product ideas should be geared to facilitating user operation, simplifying the currently-existing systems, including new features, improving driver and passenger safety, modernizing the appearance of the vehicle interior using new decoration techniques or including environmental improvements.
There are two prizes: First Prize: Award and 6000 Euros; Second Prize: Award and 3000 Euros. Any natural person or legal entity may take part in the competition. The deadline for presentation of Projects is 30 April 2009. Visit the site to learn more
