Part of the Transforma Challenge is to teach people about Circular Economy and the idea that we can achieve real environmental protection with intelligent product design. It is a new way of thinking for many people, so here are the rules:
The box must be reparable
Individual parts must be interchangeable and replaceable
The box must transform into something else (Transforma)
Your invention must be more than just a box: it must have another purpose, and it should last a long time.
Use only wood The wood must be certified ( FSC / PEFC)
Use only natural and soluble glues
No nails or adhesives
These usually cannot be reused and will make it impossible to repair your box
No synthetic paint, varnish
You must produce two prototypes: the box and the transformed box
This way the jury can judge your Transforma design
Explain your design
Provide the judges and users with instructions ( Photo/Video/Text) so they know how to transform your box
All participants must submit plans for their Transforma boxes as vectorised PDF files in advance.
At least one ballpoint pen should fit inside your Transforma
All participants should be prepared to present their Transforma box at an exhibition in May 2020.
