“Injection Design Award” is a design contest made up of 4 development phases. The aim of the first one was identifying new concepts of office accessories which include the use of injection moulding as production technology. The winner was Wave, a desk pad that works as a desk organizer and a mousepad.
Now participants have to design the winning idea in a detailed and engineering-related advanced way adopting One Shot as production technology.
One Shot is an innovative technology developed by Uniteam-Italy. Compared to the traditional injection moulding process, it allows to produce objects made of different materials and textures in a single moulding phase. Thanks to this patented technology it is possible to avoid assembly work and/or the use of several moulds.
More information about One Shot technology and the technical requirements are available in the contest page:
