Launch of the 3th edition of the contest “A streetcar named design”

Posted on: 15. December 2020

In 2017, during the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne 10th edition, the contest “a  Streetcar  design for design” students from all over France was organized. Given the success of the event, the contest of the 11th edition of the Biennale will be open to all schools within the UNESCO Creative Cities Design Network.

“A streetcar named design”, a creativity contest
The goal? To imagine and design a full covering for one of the tramway of Saint-Étienne Métropole. The company STAS, a historical partner of the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne, took advantage of the 2021 event to initiate this contest addressed to students in master’s degree in design schools and also publicize the winner’s work.

The winner obtains a check of 5.000€, an amount which allows him to make beautiful projects. The victory is not ephemeral… Indeed, every year, the winner will see his tramway circulating on the STAS’s network, and even after the end of the event; a creation that will mark spirits of several generations.
