SLIDE Srl, a benchmark design company for the Made in Italy, is looking for new concepts of unexplored products. Submit your proposal of furnishing complements and accessories that will be realised with the rotational moulding process, products that are useful for daily life, multifunctional and in line with the SLIDE style.

Company description

SLIDE Srl is an entirely Italian design industry, representative of the Made in Italy. SLIDE makes polyethylene objects with clean lines and ironic design, featuring a masterly use of light, suitable for both indoors and outdoors. They have a large range of products destined for the middle-high end market, made with the rotational moulding process and entirely recyclable thanks to their mono-materiality features.

What we are looking for

On specific request by SLIDE, this brief is also available in Italian ( Download )

The aim of “SLIDE shapes” is to find a concept for a new product that is preferably multifunctional, and that is not yet part of the SLIDE collection.
Unlike what they have produced so far (furniture for hotel, events, outdoor, indoor), now SLIDE wants to expand its catalogue with simple and functional furnishing accessories to be used in everyday life, also at home.

For the correct realisation of the projects please keep into consideration the following guidelines:

Product typology: think of a concept for an original product, that is not yet included in the SLIDE collection. Therefore, unleash your creativity and DO NOT submit concepts for chairs, tables, stools or table lamps.

Functionality: design useful objects ideal for the daily use, great to furnish domestic space or the outdoors. Multi-functionality is appreciated but is not an essential aspect and the objects can be luminous but not necessarily.

Shape and material: the product must be in one-piece and will be entirely made in polyethylene.

Size: There are no particular dimension constraints but be careful to give your objects balanced proportions. Do not exceed the maximum height of 180cm.

Production technology: design objects that can be realised with the rotational moulding process, in which SLIDE is specialised (see Material file).

Design constraints: given the rotational moulding technique, try avoiding large plane surfaces and DO NOT employ undercut and bevel edges. Thickness should not be too reduced and the minimum distance between one surface and the other should not be less than 3 cm.

1st: Royalties contract
The selection of the winner by SLIDE will be the result of an unquestionable evaluation and it will take into account originality, feasibility and consistency with the brief presented. The decision to produce the selected project remains at the discretion of SLIDE


Since we are an international Community, all texts provided with your uploads (abstract, description, tags, etc.) should be written in English.
