What are we looking for?
We’re looking for designers and companies to submit one design that can be exhibited during DesignPhiladelphia. The competition is not limited to physical products, but all designs should have an interesting visual element that can be displayed. Examples of designs include home products, digital products, furniture, medical devices, wearables, lighting, building materials, and the list goes on. Architecture projects will not be accepted, however, design solutions or processes within an architecture project that applies to the brief will be considered.
Where is the showcase?
This year’s Festival will create a Festival Hub at Cherry Street Pier, the newest public space mixed-use public space on the central Delaware River waterfront. A jury will select 10-15 finalists to exhibit among other curated exhibitions and programs at Cherry Street Pier throughout DesignPhiladelphia.
