Industrial design
Any new, original and capable of multiple reproduction appearance of a product, which manifests itself in particular in the shape, the features of the outside surface, colours, lines or ornamentation, shall constitute an industrial design.

A right in registration is granted for 25 years counted from the date of filing of an industrial design application with the Patent Office.
