The designed product or equipment should be destined for both indoor and outdoor use. Professional users should be the primary target of the proposed product. The designed product or equipment should be designed for industrial production and allow for mounting/dismounting without the requirement of specific tools, as well as for transportation by means of standard trucks.
All structural components must be made of non-combustible materials. Apart from this there are no restrictions on the choice of materials.
To best present their work, designers should submit the following materials: realistic renderings, 3D models and/or professional sketches.
