More than Backpack: the contest to design the ideal backpack by Nava Design

Nava Design, in collaboration with Open Milano, challenges students and designers of all ages with the contest “More than Backpack, open your mind and design the ideal backpack“.

The contest invites participants to present drawings or renderings of their ideal backpack, an accessory that is more and more essential for everyday life. You can apply until November 30, 2018 for one of the three categories: Design, Smart and Travel.


By December, a jury selected by Nava Design will award the creative projects with the most original and innovative ideas that best interpret “the spirit of the time” in terms of style, technological innovation and travel features.

The winner of the Design category will receive a Nava backpack from the Milan collection designed by the international designer Naoto Fukasawa; the winner of the Smart category will be awarded a Nava backpack from the Passenger collection, while the prize for the Travel category will be a backpack from the Gate collection designed for frequent travellers.


The overall winner of the three categories will take part in the industrialization study of his backpack working with the Nava Studio designer team for a period of 30 days in the company.
