In the previous New idea phase, participants were invited to suggest innovative employments of the Luxury Rubber, a leatherette rubber sheet, proposing several concepts, ideas and sketches, specifically designed with the Vibram heritage in mind. Among the various entries, AntoninoCiuro suggested an interesting concept of a backpack that included expanding and folding capabilities (read here more).
Based on his concept, all participants in the Product design phase were invited to design a new collection of backpacks, bags, containers and other accessories able to expand and fold.
Today we are glad to present you the author of the winning project of the second phase of the contest, that proposed a very interesting backpack design that we look forward to seeing on the market soon.
The winner, in addition to the cash award, will be invited to attend a special experience at the Vibram Technological Center in Guangzhou (China) where he/she will have the chance to follow the development of the project.
