‘Transform the Future 3’ is a competition for students and designers sponsored by Dalsouple Rubber Flooring in partnership with UK Sustain Magazine.

‘Transform the Future’ encourages designers and students to go out into the community and spread the word that in design, ‘sustainable’ does not mean ‘boring’.

Category 1: Interior

Students or professionals will need to establish a link with a local community group. That could be a school, college, a youth centre, or community hall. The entrants and clients together will identify an interior project and develop a realistic design solution, based on the clients’ needs.

Of course, the design should incorporate Dalsouple natural rubber as a flooring material, because this will form part of the prize.

Category 2: Product

This new category invites students or professionals from the product design community to submit concepts for products or actual products that incorporate DalNaturel natural rubber in some way. The whole item may be made of rubber or just a tiny amount may be used within the design.
