BlogTour sponsor Wilsonart wowed our team with their huge commitment to support up and coming design talent at ICFF. The company devoted two full booth spaces to “Wilsonart Challenges” an initiative, now in its 10th year that, well, challenges design students to combine their creative and technical skills to create chair designs that push design boundaries. The designs were all stunning and we can only imagine the difficulty the judges were faced with as they selected this year’s winner – Jenny Trieu.
Wilsonart prides itself in this being like no other contest in the country as they tell us: “Most design competitions are focused on production – particularly mass production. Wilsonart Challenges engages students in creating chairs that celebrate the richness of laminate surfacing materials without the restraints of mass production. The result is a visually arresting collection of one-of-a-kind chairs.”
