Functions: your proposals will have mainly decorative and aesthetic functions, all the same granting the primary functions of the product at issue. Pay due attention also to the issues of usability and style, adding significant innovations to your proposals.

Materials: for your proposal consider the employment of materials currently used in the Lampa catalogue, that is nylon, acrylic, ABS and zamak). In your projects you can use either a single material or more materials combined.

Target: the products we are looking for will be employed in the clothing, footwear, leather and fashion accessories industries.
