OPEN Cycle and DT Swiss, two companies active in the bicycle industry, are organizing the “Ready to Paint” design competition
The purpose of this competition is to pick up on the current trend towards the individualisation of everyday objects such as
bicycles and bicycle frames and give selected products of the organising companies an individual design: More specifically,
the winning design of the competition will be applied to a limited edition of OPEN bicycle frames, DT Swiss wheels, cycling jerseys
as well as Artek chairs. As the host of the competition, Vitra will provide the appropriate premises in which the designs will be
exhibited on 23 September 2020 in Weil am Rhein, Germany. In addition, a coffee table booklet including a portrait of the artists
and its motif will be created from the 20 best designs. A detailed description of the competition as well as all documents relevant for the participation in the design competition
can be downloaded at: https://www.dtswiss.com/en/ready-to-paint Participation in the competition is possible until 9 August 2020 and is free of charge. The total value of all prizes awarded is about 10000€.
