Edizione 2012 del Samsung Young Design Award: il contest, quest’anno, ha avuto come tema l’Urban Mobility, per poter applicare le tecnologie moderne alla vita di tutti i giorni in città, con servizi, proposte, prodotti che potessero davvero migliorare il rapporto tra i cittadini e le loro città. Si tratta della sesta edizione del concorso, patrocinato dall’ADI, e rivolto a giovani designer italiani e studenti di Design Industriale. Il premio è stato consegnato presso il Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo Da Vinci di Milano.
La nuova edizione del Samsung Young Design Award ha visto protagonisti alcuni giovani designer come il creatore di Arianna, per la mobilità infantile nelle moderne città, che ha vinto il primo premio, la creatrice di WoWindow, lo schermo da applicare ai finestrini dell’auto per permettere di comunicare tra interno ed esterno, i designer di D Mark, lo spray digitale per creare graffiti senza “sporcare” i muri. Menzione speciale, poi, per Magellano, un bastone intelligente per permettere ai non vedenti e ai disabili di vivere con sicurezza la città.
Ora il premio, nato in Italia, potrebbe anche essere esportato in altri paesi del mondo.
