The past open design contest of 2014 challenged designers to send in their 3D designs for a Fairphone Accessory. That could be more than just a case: think of a stand, or something for your bike, or something that helps you to carry it around at a festival or any other innovative use. From the entries, three finalists were chosen who can join the masterclass in 3D design that will be held on 14 and 15 November at the Waag by 3D-print expert Joris van Tubergen.
From this masterclass one winner will emerge. The designs will be promoted/made available under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license via the Fairphone website.
These are the three international finalists:
- Fairphone modular bumper case + bike mount by Vítor Marinho (Portugal)
- Fairphone Flipstage by Floris Elteren (The Netherlands)
- FairPhone Desk Speaker by Carolina Stefansson (Germany)
The open design contest was held for the fifth time this year. The history of the contest started in 2009 in The Netherlands initiated by Premsela, Waag and Creative Commons and was followed by international contest in the next years in the Benelux countries, Paris and Vienna. The participants are sharing their blueprints under a Creative Commons license, enabling the re-use of their design under the conditions of the BY-NC-SA license.
The Fairphone Accesssory Challenge 2014 is organized by Fairphone, Schrijf-Schrijf and Waag, sponsored by 3D Hubs en supported by the DOEN Foundation.
