The success of this project series strongly depends on a close cooperation between the School of Design of the University of Applied Sciences Mainz and the constantly growing network of industrial companies. The result is a win-win option for all actors. The students, who, for the most part, are encountering these materials for the first time, challenge the companies with unconventional ideas and provide innovative stimuli. In turn, the young designers benefit from the opportunity to actually implement their design ideas supported by know-how, materials and cutting-edge production technologies provided by the enterprises.
