Discover The Optical Design Contest

Launch of the second edition of the Optical Design Contest, organised by the SILMO for its 2023 exhibition.

SILMO Paris, a meeting place for technologies, expertise and trends, is once again offering up-and-coming designers the opportunity to try their hand at designing optics objects.

SILMO continues to support creativity through an international competition aimed at students over 18 years of age who are enrolled in 3rd, 4th or 5th year of a design course. They can work alone or in groups, and also in collaboration with students from other courses meeting the same age and level criteria, if their projects require it.

This is a way for them to demonstrate their know-how, their vision, and a way to reveal the talents that will make the future of the optical world.

To participate, students must submit a project integrating an assertive design approach for an optical object intended for the WORLD OF SPORT. A spectrum of creation turned towards the future, in view of the 2024 Olympic Games! Lenses, frames, connected objects, low vision or equipment for opticians and manufacturers, it is up to them to imagine the innovative designs of these products and uses of tomorrow!

Participate in the Optical Design 2023 competition and submit your project, integrating a strong design approach for an optical object.

The projects selected by the jury will be developed and prototyped in collaboration with SILMO's industrial partners, to be examined by a jury of professionals and exhibited at the September edition. The winner will be announced at Silmo 2023.
