About WDC Tenders

World Design Consortium Tenders are invitation only design competitions where design buyers have already signed a preliminary agreement for design procurement. Participation is free of charge for designers however only A’ Design Award winners are allowed to participate in order to have a high level of quality of entries.

Executive Summary

Design 5 lamps for a big lighting manufacturer Client, and then submit your work to A’ Design Award WDC Tender 20170810 Competition. Do it for fun, experience, money and fame.

Budget

Budget of the Client: 15.000 Euro for 5 Lamp Designs. The project is one-time payment, no royalty fees involved, the payment will be lump-sum. The client could actually buy additional designs however it is obvious that the company wants to spend little for each lamp because every year this brand releases hundreds of new lamps to the market. The Client is indeed a large manufacturer so if we could please them with good work, we could for sure have repeat jobs and projects. If exceptional designs are presented, it could potentially be possible to convince the client to pay also royalties as well, however, at this point they will not; if you are submitting designs know that there would not be royalty payments at first.

Benefits

  • You get up to 15.000 Euro if Client buys five (5) lamp designs, all from you.
  • Each eligible participant that submits a good design proposal will also get a free digital nomination ticket. It will be our sole discretion to decide what is a good design proposal.
  • Winning participant also gets their selected works nominated to several further international design awards such as Reddot, If Design Award and A’ Design Award professional edition, sponsored by the Client.
  • Your works, if selected as a winner, will be realized and manufactured.
  • Your works, if selected as a winner, will be exhibited in Fuori Salone in Milan.
  • Client promises to run an advertising campaign promoting winning designers’ name in its origin country.
  • You get up to five (5) lamps from the first production, one (1) of each of your design selected as a winning work.
  • This is a good opportunity to have your name marketed and promoted.
  • This is a big client, they need over hundred designs each year, we are just giving them five, this means they might commission more works from you.
  • You could really win this; this is an exclusive tender open to participation of past A’ Design Award winners only.

Design Brief

The Theme: The Client want to have neo-modern Ming Lamps; so they are expecting to see some modern Lamps based on classical Ming Dynasty Furniture but with your style. You do not need to do extensive technical design; the Client has a large engineering department and will do the engineering themselves, for sure making also subtle modifications to design to make it manufactured for a reasonable cost, this means that you could let your creativity talk without thinking much on the technical drawings. Number of Designs: 5 Lamps (1 Wall Lamp, 1 Ceiling Lamp, 1 Hanging Lamp, 1 Table Lamp, 1 Floor Lamp), they like to have a product family, so when designing it might be a good idea to have pieces that could be sold together, of course the Client might also purchase exceptional one of items, but you would prefer to sell five (5) designs. Client is in China, and is especially interested in European Designers to have a different perspective. However this does not limit anyone’s participation (except that we only permit prior award winners from any A’ Design Award category to submit works). We will present the designs without nationalities and names to reduce any bias. Client has wood and metal manufacturing technologies available, designs should preferably be based on wood or metal as a base structure, and of course you could use fabric, simple glass, and other parts that could be outsourced or procured by the Client but always it is a good idea to think of costs and production when coming up with a commercially viable design. Use a search engine and search images for “Ming Furniture” : Client wishes to develop some modern lights that incorporate some ideas and styling of Ming Furniture. The lamps must be elegant, the target market is refined and affluent Chinese clients who are proud of their cultural heritage yet also embrace the modern.

How to Join

Submit your projects at A’ Design Award website under the Competition: WDC Tender 20170810. The WDC Tender 20170810 is available at the list of competitions, and it is free to nominate a work to this particular competition. Use the standard A’ Design Award procedure and submission guidelines, just in the final step select WDC Tender 20170810. Deadline for entry is on 21 September 2017. It is a good idea to submit one (1) design only; so if the Client likes your first (1st) design, we could ask you to do four (4) more designs for the Client, that being said, you can submit as many designs as you like if you have the time.

Tips

You do not need to make the designs yourself; you can just oversee the project and let someone from your design team or one of your design partners to do the work. Finally, we want to remind to complete the nomination procedure after submission; after uploading the project, proceed with its nomination to WDC Tender 20170810 competition category, this special category is free to join but you still need to click the Nominate button so we could differentiate between drafts and completed entries.
