Design contest that aims to involve young creatives, designers, artists and makers, is divided into two sections: material and 3D print, the first is dedicated to innovative materials, as the carbon fiber and the second to the 3D print. The material section is limited to the lighting design and is required to design a lamp with the carbon fiber, instead the 3D print section does not impose limit except for the size of the final object (50x50x50).
