Inscape believes in offering value driven products to ensure the diverse growth of the creative sector and industry at large.

We have an established institutional culture that is unique to Inscape and its students. Our culture is built on a value system that encourages quality, authenticity and relationships. We strive for this to be reflective in all areas of our institution.

Inscape launched Project81 in 2015 with the sole focus of driving innovation and entrepreneurship amongst its students. Project81 is an initiative developed to identify and promote 81 unique and innovative products, designed by Inscape students, annually.

Project81 kicked off in 2016 with a phenomenal partnership with Belgotex Flooring with the main focus on creating new products from upcycled waste.

Project 81 is a real world student project where students are faced with the challenges of working in creative teams, managing and driving innovation and sustainability, job creation and creative thinking within business boundaries.

The first leg of a three-part roadshow took place on 26 October 2016 at Inscape Education Groups, Pretoria campus situated in close proximity to the bustling Menlyn Maine.

44 finalists were selected and their products were displayed at the event.

Congratulations to the following Project81 winners and runner ups for 2016. Five winners in the following categories were selected; Local context, Most beautiful object, Optimal use of waste, Social impact and Clever and sustainable solution.

For ‘Local context’, Duren Moodley, from Inscape’s Durban Campus for his ‘Ergo Bucket’.

The Ergo bucket is an ergonomically designed 20L water bucket. The ergonomically designed "rings" placed around the common holding points of a water bucket, have been revised to better suit the human hand. The bucket is shorter in height than a regular bucket to create a lower centre of gravity for carrying on top of the head. The middle of the bucket is wider to accommodate the 20L capacity and also increases the size of the holding surface.

For the ‘Most beautiful object’, Lara Longworth from Inscape’s Cape Town campus for her “Shoe (Veltex)”.

The Shoe (Veltex) is created from Belgotex pre-needled waste that forms the top of the shoe and is complimented by a yarn braided together for the shoelaces.

For “Optimal use of waste”, Nicola Leigh De Decker from Inscape’s Cape Town Campus for her “Backsack”

The Backsack is a Portable blanket that doubles up as a backpack, made from Belgotex Monofiliment yarn, Belgotex fibre-colour change, bale waste and Belgotex tex/non-tex waste.

For ‘Social impact’, Savanah Paed from Inscape’s Midrand campus for her ‘Toy Water Bike’.

The Toy Water Bike is a pedal bike that is designed for kids as a toy as well as for the transportation of water to outlying rural areas that are not directly connected to running water facilities. The seat has a twofold purpose and also allows for water transportation and storage. The seat was constructed out of Belgotex waste pellets.

For “Clever and Sustainable Solution’ was Nicole Geier, from Inscape’s Pretoria Campus for “Single Shacks”

“Single Shacks” is an inexpensive, waterproof, roofing solution, produced from ironed carpet tiles using Belgotex Redundant Masterbatch.

Prizes included an all-expenses paid trip to Design week in Milan for two, as well as trips to Design Indaba in Cape Town in 2017 all sponsored by Belgotex Flooring. Prizes also include the opportunity to have all five of the finalists develop their products into working prototypes made possible by the Product Development Technology Station (PDTS), at the Central University of Technology in the Free State and Inscape Education Group.
