Material: DiamArt has developed a technology to use the tiny diamonds which are leftover from the tool production. These artificial diamonds need a support – see a report about white marble as porter under https://www.stone-ideas.com/74132/diamart-inlays-of-tiny-diamonds-in-marble/. Now, the company is developing a line with glass and glass fiber as support. Entries must respect size and thickness limitations but are free to choose the color (only one color is allowed per piece).
Industrial design: The proposals must be apt for industrial processes, to allow for mass production. It is of the utmost importance that the entries respect the materials which shall be used. Entries comrising 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.
Product value: the products shall be designed for a target above 25 years, with purchasing power in line with the luxury sector. The company’s target consumer is very keen on details and pays great attention to product elegance and material quality. The diamonds are meant to embellish the object and give it a unique style.
