The ISPO Brandnew 2015 Magazine

This is how a Workingday of the Jury of ISPO Brandnew 2015 looks like

“They have all been in exactly the same situation: a panel observed their product, their brand and decided that they can present themselves at ISPO Munich as one of the best startups of the sports business. Now they had the same task. Almost all the ISPO Brandnew jury members were founding members of former ISPO Brandnew winners and finalists. From their own experiences they know exactly what is of importance. Here they tell us about their highlights and impressions.”ISPO Brandnew 2015 Magazine

Designer Michele Stinco (winner 2012) was a jury member of ISPO Brandnew 2015 too: “I believe that true innovation solely starts in small pieces. Craftsmanship and imagination are the base for groundbreaking inventions and good design of the present and past.”

Here you’ll learn about how a day as a jury member of ISPO Brandnew 2015 award is like. Besides, Brandnew Magazine has written a story of success about polychromelab from 2012 til today. So have a look on it and get to know the work of jury members of ISPO Brandnew:

From Trend Jacket Alta Quota to experienced CEO of a Startup

In 2010 project polychrome hybrid jacket started with a first concept. It took long time to create out of a prototype an ultimate trend jacket, which cools on side and warms on the other. Here you can read more about what the american trend blog Cool Hunting is writing on polychromelab Alta Quota jacket.

Getting some financial support and winning awards startup polychromelab ltd. was founded in 2012.

AWS supports hybrid outdoorjackets

The AWS supports hybrid outdoorjackets by polychromelab

AWS supports multifunctional hybrid outdoorjackets by polychromelab for three years already. Here what AWS has to say about polychromelab outdoorjackets:

Impulse XS supported fabric, realised as a reversible jacket, absorbs warmth, reflects warmth by reversing the jacket. Best protection at sports or work. What else? New usabilities and fabric combinations will be explored. Cool/Hot?

The business concept is based on the product development of a fabric, visaualised and realised as a hybrid outdoorjacket, which received financial support by impulse XS in 2011. The unique selling proposition of the jacket is the polychrome-laminat fabric. The jacket is able to absorb warmth through textile physics and reflect warmth by applied physics and adapts itself easily to every weather condition by turning inside out. These features are the optimal preconditions for manufacturing a fabric with a ceramic membrane as sports apparel and work protection apparel. Through an intelligent composition of fabric, inside and membrane in combination with different textiles emerge many undeveloped possibilities of application and production of different types of jackets. This two temperature zones based system is waterproof, highly breathable, windproof, stylish and sustainable conceptualized. A wide range of use will be explored in near future, more fabrics will be developed. This concept makes the way for a whole new types of jackets.

The multifunctional hybrid outdoorjackets by polychromelab are available in polychromelab concept store.

Cycling jacket exhibited on Eurobike Friedrichshafen

Pedaled cycling jacket wins Eurobike Award 2014

It was more than one year ago when Pedaled and polychromelab decided to design a cycling jacket, which stands out as a real functional jacket. There was hard work to do to create an awarded jacket, because demands on functional jackets in the bicycling branch are high.

Using the unique reversible fabric by polychromelab one can conceptualize a reversible jacket which can cool body temperature down on one side and – reversed to the other side – is able to warm. The fabric is highly breathable and additionally a 100% windproof and waterproof – so the reversible fabric is the best requirement for a high-tech cycling jacket.

The japanese designer Hideto Suzuki started to design a functional designer cycling jacket with the reversible fabric. For his effort he wins the Eurobike Award 2014 in collaboration with Pedaled and polychromelab.

Here are some pictures of the reversible cycling jacket on the Eurobike 2014 in Friedrichshafen at the Pedaled booth and the statement of the jury about the Eurobike Award.
