Michelin North America, Inc. (“Michelin”) created the annual Michelin Challenge Design™ to celebrate, promote, publicize and give visibility to original creative thinking and innovation in vehicle design.
By embracing and supporting design, Michelin aims to establish a closer relationship with the design community, combining technical innovation with transportation design to create vehicles that consumers want to buy and will enjoy driving.
Michelin Challenge Design is a collection of events and activities reflecting Michelin North America’s interest in and commitment to innovative design.
Michelin’s corporate culture places a high value on design and innovation as important to consumer satisfaction and maintaining Michelin’s role as the industry leader.
Utilizing our position as a leading member of the automotive industry and our unique position as a non-OEM exhibitor at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS),
Michelin offers a challenge to designers around the world, individuals and small and large companies, to enthusiastically create, bring forward and display, significant design work
that would normally not have an opportunity to be shown at a major auto show.
