Porsche puts their name on a lot of great products and the iconic design of the 911 is the catalyst for a wide variety of them. Now, Co.Design and Porsche are sponsoring a contest that lets you put your love for Porsche and creativity to the test with the Porsche Next Design Challenge.
How it Works
The rules are actually quite simple. In order to participate you must "design an object smaller than a living room and bigger than a purse, which references three design elements taken from Porsche 911s of the past or present. (But not a car!)" To enter, simply visit this site.
Designers will have until the 6th of April to submit their design complete with an explanation of what was imagined and how your were influenced by the Porsche 911. Co.Design will narrow the list of entries to a Top 25. and reveal them on their web-site. That list will then be further culled to a Top 7 who will be asked to refine their concepts further. Once these revised designs are complete they will be showcased on Co.Design's site and voting begins. While submissions will be formally judged by a panel of well known industrial designers, voting will most likely help influence their decision.
What does the Winner Get?
Not only will the winning entry receive significant exposure for their design, they will be awarded a grand-prize of $20,000 or a one-year lease on a Porsche 911 (all courtesy of Porsche). We've seen a lot of cool Porsche related products over the years, so we can't wait to May 21st when the winner will be revealed.
