New contest on 3M and Desall invite you to design a piece of furniture for indoors or outdoors, which can only be assembled using 3M adhesive systems instead of traditional mechanical fixing methods (screws, rivets, welding, etc).

3M relies on the international community of designers to explore new projects that include the exclusive use of 3M adhesive systems in the assembly phase instead of traditional mechanical fasteners (screws, rivets, welding, etc.). They are looking for innovative and creative solutions but that maintain a real feasibility character.
