Jamo Design Contest - Design Tomorrow's Products


With this first edition, we invite designers under 30 years old to participate in our design contest entitled “tomorrow’s products”. Young talents will need to honor the Scandinavian design (the look of the products, not the technology inside), respect the Nordic color palette (the blue/grey of the fjords, the yellow mustard from the villages, the terracotta from the fishing cabins, the green from the pine forests, the white from the interiors) and explore to find the features that will ease people's life.

While you rethink the design of the products , you will need to lean on 2 of our brand pillars: Scandinavian and Authenticity.

  • Scandinavian design is characterized by simplicity, minimalism, design and functionality.
  • Authenticity finds its roots within our 50 years legacy and the Scandinavian way of life.

THE CATEGORIES

All projects must belong to one of the below categories:

  • WIRELESS SPEAKERS : create the wireless speaker (table top, portable) that will find its place in any room of a contemporary interior
  • SOUND BAR: imagine the sound bar or sound enhancer that you can plug on a TV to enjoy TV, movies, series
  • POWERED MONITORS: image the pair of powered monitors to enjoy stereo sound from a compact format

THE PRIZES

During the plenary meeting, a jury of professionals will designate TWO winners in each category.

1ST PRIZE: 3,000€

2ND PRIZE: 1,500€
