Lampa, a company active in the industrial design and production of accessories for the most important brands in the Italian and international fashion, recently has relesaed on the site Desall.com the 2nd edition of its Product Design Contest looking for innovative solutions both in terms of aesthetics and functions for a new collection of technical accessories for clothing, leatherwear and footwear, reinterpreting with new shapes and aesthetic choices some product typologies that already exist or proposing technical solutions yet to be employed.
Product typology: suggest the design for a new collection of closures/technical accessories for clothing, leatherwear and footwear, including:

You are free to explore new closing or fixing modalities or to reinterpret with new shapes and aesthetic choices products that are already available in their catalogue.
Functions: the researched products shall both serve a decorative function – hence they must be a good fit for the various products they are meant for (clothing items, footwear, leatherwear, etc.) – and the specific function (closing, fixing, adjusting, etc.) that each product is required to perform according to its typology.
Style: you are free to reinterpret the style of the products already available in their catalogue or to propose an innovative style, always keeping into consideration the market the company operates in, with a special focus on the street wear world.
Materials: the elements you are invited to develop might use one or more materials, among: PA, acrylics, resins, zamak and rubber.
Production technologies: the collection of products you propose shall be industrialisable, hence manufacturable through large scale production technologies, including moulding and lathing.
Target: the products you propose shall be conceived for a wide public, with a particular focus on the average customer of street wear products.
