On the wings of sustainability – cast your vote for the best wing chair

Buncombe by Claire Beumer

ProjectUDesign, sponsored by BiOH – the makers of soybased polyols that replace a portion of petroleum chemicals in foam products in collaboration with Century Furniture, Ultrasuede and Savannah College of Art and Design, is engaging talented design students to create a wing chair that will become part of Century Furniture’s collection. As if the privilege of having the design be part of a collection with a renowned firm like Century with all due royalties to boot, the winner will also receive a $1,000 cash prize.

The contest will run through October 19 so cast your vote, via Facebook. Go on, make a student happy!

Buncombe by Claire Beumer, shown above, is our favorite but we are not so biased that we aren’t also going to show you the others. The Alifair Chair by Ryland Quillen

We want to thank the BiOH, the sponsor of this contest and all of the project partners for their vision and motivation to bring sustainable design to the forefront and to student’s attention whilst keeping the fun in it, and wish all participants best of luck in their design careers.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful display of student work for Project UDesign. We have had so much fun working on this and promoting the student designs. We had nearly 2,000 people “decide” for round one of voting. Appreciate your participation in making this a HUGE SUCCESS!!!

    Thank you for the support of Project UDesign! We are very excited about this opportunity for SCAD students to incorporate soy-based BiOH® polyols foam with their design and furniture construction process to make their wing-chair more environmentally friendly. I can’t tell you my fave but good choice with yours!
