IDEA has 20 competition categories and demonstrates the expansive nature of industrial design and its impact on daily life. The span of categories is a reflection of the magnitude of modern human need and a designer's remarkable ability to respond to challenges through creative thinking and thoughtful design. IDEA is so much more than a competition in styling or trends. It is an enduring mark of ingenuity that has been championing our best and brightest designers for decades.
