I'm excited to be one of the jury members for the Modern Chair Design Showdown happening next month at Mod a-go-go. Please spread the word and encourage people to submit a project - I want to be overwhelmed with the number of chairs I have to judge!
From the website: "When it comes to Design, Utah is home to a host of raw talent. Local furniture designers are moving into the national spotlight, while countless others have yet to be discovered. In order to fuel innovation, define the Utah furniture design scene, and to catalyze interaction between designers, manufacturers, craftsmen and new clients, Mod-a-go-go is pleased to announce The Modern Chair: a Design Showdown in 3 Dimensions. The competition brings together both novices and professionals with the challenge of designing the perfect chair."
