100% Design – 100% HI-MACS!

The winners of the 2011 HI-MACS® Design competition organized by LG Hausys Europe have been announced at a ceremony during the 100% Design show in London. The eight finalists in the two categories, professional and student, were all at the exhibition, where their designs – fabricated in real size by Global Vacuum Presses were all on show.

The winner in the professional category was the E-Moke, while the Naked Lamp was the winner in the student category.
“E-Moke” by Daniel Abendroth, Stuttgart, Germany (Professional).

A static bike-like object for public places for people to sit and relax on while gently pedalling to re-charge mobile devices.

“Naked Lamp” by Mario Fuentes, Barcelona, Spain (Student).

A single form street lamp designed to bring both colour and light to town or city streets – it demonstrates high aesthetic and practical values.

The competition was conceived to allow entrants to exploit the extraordinary versatility of HI-MACS® – using its durability, formability and ease of visibly seamless joining to create any three-dimensional shape desired. The non-porous and light-fast qualities of HI-MACS® also make it uniquely applicable for outdoor applications. Here are a few more pictures of other entries:

There are some fantastic pieces of furniture design featured here that all go to show the adaptability and flexibility of HI-MACS in furniture design, a particular favorite of ours is The Urban Bench but we can have no qualms over the two winners, both fantastic products.
