This year’s the theme of this Design Competition has been influenced by the social impacts of urbanisation which affects our lifestyle in the homes we live in, the cars we drive, the furniture we own, and the sports we engage in. The question to be answered is what role can design and innovation play to ensure that we are prepared and equipped for this social adaptation?

They are inviting creative minds across Asia Pacific to draw inspiration from they materials and submit innovative design ideas that address the complex challenges and opportunities of urban living. Submissions can range from consumer items (furniture, footwear, apparel, etc) to industrial products (medical devices, construction equipment, etc) or any object that can help societies realise their aspiration of healthier, smarter and sustainable living.

Applicants are encouraged to submit innovative designs and unique interpretations that are true to the essence of the theme. You will have to submit ideas using at least one BASF material featured in the material kit.

Submissions must be original work and not previously published or submitted to other competitions internationally. The ownership and copyright of all entry materials submitted remains with their respective entrants.
