Another year of high-flying product design graduates were on show at New Designers, London, where we headed along to uncover the most eye-catching new industry talents.

Here we’ve picked our favourite 15 graduates and their final year projects, with this long list reducing to our Top 3 to be published in the summer issue of DEVELOP3D Magazine.

As with anything that adds a swig of competitive nature to design, people will have their own opinions, but please be aware that is probably more to the projects shown below than the quick pic and description implies - we encourage you to look further at all the projects and the designers behind them.

So well done to all graduating in 2017 and congratulations to the 15 below that have displayed a mix of brilliant ideas, excellent execution, business-nosed nouse, and problem solving skills that set them apart in our eyes:

Bright thinking from Hella means that the driver has more light on the road at all times

Automotive lighting experts Hella have partnered with Daimler AG to launch a new method of headlamp design, high-resolution Multibeam LED headlamps, for the new Mercedes E-Class.

The new product features a three-layered pixel light and a total of 84 individual controllable LEDs per headlamp, which adjust the light distribution depending on the traffic, weather and road conditions.

The integrated adaptive ‘High Beam Assistant Plus’ ensures that high beam is used more frequently, offering greater safety and comfort, sensing other vehicles on the road, either directly in front or oncoming and will selectively mask, within fractions of a second, the light distribution area, to prevent other drivers from being dazzled but allowing the driver maximum visibility by keeping the safe areas between them illuminated.

Surf’s up at the Dock - a design to save surfer energy

Published 17 July 2017

Surf magazine Stab has teamed up with clothing brand Volcom to launch a 100ft pontoon anchored off the coast of Bali, with the design creating a new wave of surfing, where the athlete can wait for the perfect wave, rather than constantly paddling.

It reportedly weighs half a ton, so launching off the big grey unit - known as The Dock - can be perilous, but the results are often worth the risk as the video below shows.

It’s a simple design, with an underwater A-frame peak anchoring the pontoon, stopping it from becoming a runaway vehicle, but allowing it the freedom to move snake-like with the waves, making for some fun, tricky and downright crazy drops onto towering waves.
