'One Good Chair 2010: Minimum/Maximum' Design Challenge: Approaching Entry Deadline
Finalists to be Named at Summer 2010 Las Vegas Market
Less than two weeks remains to register early for the "One Good Chair 2010 Minimum/Maximum" design competition, which challenges participants to design a chair that's not only sustainable but also comfortable. To date, more than 150 people from all over the globe have registered.
The One Good Chair competition, now in its third year, is sponsored by the Sustainable Furnishings Council and the Las Vegas Design Center at World Market Center Las Vegas and is being organized by architect, designer, green advocate and author Lance Hosey, whose upcoming book "Shape of Green Design" explores how form and image can enhance conservation and comfort at every scale of design. Other supporters of the 2010 competition include Dwell magazine as a media partner, Savannah College of Art and Design and manufacturers Handy Living and Weyerhaeuser serving as production partners.
"This year's theme, Minimum/Maximum, challenges designers to use as little material as possible to create a comfortable, durable, beautiful chair," said Hosey. "Not any easy task, so I'm very excited to see how innovative the contestants can get. The competition gets better every year and this year's entries are sure to be inspiring."
The entry fee for the One Good Chair competition is $50 U.S. dollars until May 1, after which time the fee increases to $70. Registration can be completed online at http://www.onegoodchair.com/register-check no later than June 15, 2010.
