DiamArt and Desall invite designers around the world to participate in a design competition that introduces new products for the luxury world, conceived to be embellished by the innovative micro diamond’s material DiamArt. You can submit designs from different categories such as jewelry, fashion accessories, clothing items, furniture, or interior decoration.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Participation is free of charge and open to designers and creative talents of any nationality aged 18 years or older.
  • Participants can present one or more projects, but only the projects published on the www.desall.com web site, via the upload page related to “DiamArt Luxury Design” will be accepted.

Evaluation Criteria:

In the evaluation of your submissions the Sponsor will take into account the following criteria:

  • Aesthetics 5/5
  • Compliance with the target 5/5
  • Degree of innovation 4/5
  • Technical feasibility 4/5
  • Project submission 3/5

Categories:

The products you propose shall belong to one of the following categories:

  • jewelry.
  • furniture items.
  • interior decoration.
  • fashion accessories.
  • clothing items.

Participation Conditions:

  • DiamArt requires a supporting material for the application, either made of glass or glass fiber. Depending on the product typology and on the context of use, either one material or the other will be most suitable, as better described in the following paragraphs. Both supports allow for several color swatches, as per the color palette provided in the Material files, with the possibility to also offer on-demand customized color variations. However, each support shall be single-color, that is it must be characterized by the same color swatch over all its surface (for ex. color gradations or juxtaposition of different colors on the same support are not allowed, etc.). You may nevertheless achieve polychromatic effects on the same project by placing different pieces side by side, each characterized by a specific color. For more information on the material.
  • Glass support: this support allows for maximum size for the decoration of 240x240 mm, from which you can cut out any shape through waterjet. The total thickness of this support is 4,5 mm, which includes 0,15 mm of the micro diamonds layer. This support is suitable for direct gluing and, given its thickness, it is preferably used as an insert to be placed inside a dedicated recessed area on the target product, to prevent the glass edges from being exposed and thus to protect the decoration from any possible damage. At your discretion, you may place various glass supports side by side, keeping into consideration that the joint line (about 0,5 mm thick) will remain visible; accordingly, you will have to evaluate whether this joint may play an active role in the overall aesthetics of the product or not. Given its rigidity, the glass support is particularly apt for decorating furnishing times or for embellishing interior decorations. You may nevertheless suggest this support also for other product categories.
  • Glass fiber support: This support allows for a maximum decoration area of 320x480 mm, from which you can cut out any shape through waterjet or laser cut. The total thickness of this support is 0,5 mm or 0,7 mm with double-sided tape; in both cases, 0,15 mm refers to the micro diamonds layer. The glass fiber sheet allows for many application possibilities, through direct gluing, stitching, or double-sided tape. It is thus particularly apt for the decoration of fashion accessories, clothing items, or jewelry, thanks to the flexibility of the glass fiber support.
  • Production technologies: your proposals shall be apt for industrial processes, to allow for their mass production. Proposals succeeding in providing also a rough estimate of the production costs will be particularly appreciated, keeping as a reference a batch of 10 – 100 pieces and a cost for the DiamArt decoration of about 2-3 EUR/cm2
  • Target: the products you suggest shall be designed for a target above 25 years, with purchasing power in line with the luxury sector. The target consumer is very keen on details and pays great attention to product elegance and to the quality of the materials.
  • Values to convey: in line with the brand values, your proposals shall be able to convey the exclusive and precious trait of the micro diamond’s material DiamArt, fully satisfying the expectations of the luxury consumer.

About DiamArt:

Today DiamArt is a Made in Italy flagship product that carries absolute value in the world's luxury sector, combining Italian craftsmanship and sophisticated technology. Unique in the world. In 2015, DiamArt's founders presented the first picture made with micro-diamond surfaces at the Vicenza Oro trade fair in Dubai. In the same year, DiamArt was chosen by Nike to supply the decorations for Cristiano Ronaldo's CR7 football boots to celebrate the Ballon d'Or. 2016 was the decisive year for DiamArt, with the patent for the surface application of micro diamonds. The official birth of a completely new product on the international market. 2017 was also the year when DiamArt's material was officially listed as a precious material, thanks to the IGI's approval of the method of calculating carat weight per square centimeter. Success was confirmed the following year, 2019, when the International Design Academy awarded DiamArt Fabric in the Textile, Fabric, Textures, Patterns, and Cloth Design category. The same year saw DiamArt becoming an official supplier for the United Arab Emirates.
