Six winning projects in the first edition of the contest promoted by Promaplast srl and POLI.design

122 participating candidates, 12 finalists, 6 winners: these are the numbers of the first edition of the Plastic Technologies Award 2012, contest organized and promoted by Promaplast srl and POLI.design, with patronage by ADI, the Italian Association for Industrial Design, that invited designers to deal with polymeric materials by developing innovative projects basing on one of the six themes indicated in the announcement: injection moulding, extrusion, blowmoulding, rotational moulding, recycling, biopolymers.
 
The aim of Plastic Technologies Award 2012 was to promote the creation of highly innovative projects from the cultural, functional and productive point of view, but also to encourage meetings between designers and companies in this field, that could decide to produce the winning projects, and to share innovation targets in one of the most extensive exhibition in Europe.

Different companies sponsored the prizes: MAGIC MP, NEGRI BOSSI, NOVAMONT, PERSICO ROTATIONAL DIVISION and TORNINOVA, together with PLAST 2012 organizer, PROMAPLAST srl, e PLASTICSEUROPE Italia.

Here are the winning projects:
