Pratic Pergola Evolution Design now is over!
Pratic and Desall recently has announced new product design contest 'Pratic Pergola Evolution Design', seeking innovative concept designs for an outdoor pergola that will stand out in the market with its unique design, functionality, and technical solutions.
New product design contest 'Pratic Pergola Evolution Design' has been recently organised by Pratic and Desall seeking innovative concept designs for an outdoor pergola that will stand out in the market with its unique design, functionality, and technical solutions.
Pratic, a pioneering Italian company specialising in the design and production of awnings and outdoor pergolas are seeking a new aluminium pergola design intended for outdoor use, primarily for protection from sun, rain, and wind. The design should incorporate innovative integrated solutions to offer additional benefits that align with the open-air living culture.
You are invited to design a self-supporting outdoor pergola, primarily consisting of an aluminium frame and additional accessory elements. Essential components to include in the design are:
➜ Frame: consisting of load-bearing structural elements that can be anchored directly to the ground or any walkable base.
➜ Cover with water drainage system: a cover that 1) can be manually or motor-operated for opening and closing; 2) is designed to provide shade and/or waterproof protection; 3) is made from a cloth or other suitable materials and 4) has a water drainage system.
➜ Lighting system.
➜ Other accessory elements.
The pergola’s structure should be modular, allowing for dimensional variations or different product configurations. Sealing the pergola structure on all four sides with fixed walls is not permitted, as air-conditioned environments are not the focus of this contest. However, parapets, parasols, or other partial or reversible elements or features applied to the walls are allowed.
You may submit a pergola variant that can be fixed to a building’s wall on one or more sides (not mandatory, but nice to have).
The product’s technical and economic feasibility is crucial.
The pergola should feature sleek and elegant lines, and may incorporate unique and identifiable aesthetic elements that set it apart from standard market offerings. There are no specific limitations on colours or surface finishes.
Further informations you will find on the official website.
➜ Provide detailed descriptions and 5 images to effectively present your projects. Images should be in 4:3 format, with .jpg, .gif or .png file formats acceptable. The colour mode should be RGB and the maximum size of a single file should be 1 MB.
➜ Degree of innovation
➜ Aesthetic quality
➜ Technical feasibility
