ARENA DESIGN gave Polish startups a chance. They used it!

14 November 2018

This year, for the first time, the ARENA DESIGN was accompanied by the Start-DESIGN-up exhibition. It was a presentation of Polish startups which treat design as an element of building a competitive advantage on the market.

The Start-DESIGN! -Up exhibition was a presentation of the creative and business potential of young people. The editors of Take Me To Design and Design / Biznes selected and presented at their stand those companies that offer products not only technologically innovative, but also well designed.

On the exhibition, you could see: Musicon (musical invention), Photon (robot learning to gamification), Skriware (3D printer, teaching programming and designing subjects), Anima Smart Notificator (first notifier in the world, “family friend”), Honeycomb – honeycomb (template for precision cutting, material processing) and EcoLife (home AirQuality station).

The exhibition was very popular. Each visitor could check how the product presented works, talk to its creator or designer. Students of one of the starups – Anima Smart Notificator – have just launched a Kickstarter campaign. The implementation of the project for production requires a collection of 40,000 dollars. Still there is a chance that Anima will soon be available on the Polish market.
