Wilsonart student chair competition

ICFF | New York Design week

Winner of Wilsonart student chair competition at ICFF | Infinite by Jenny Trieu | blogtourNYC
BlogtourNYC sponsor Wilsonart presented the winner Infinite by Jenny Trieu and the runners-up from the Wilsonart student chair competition at ICFF.

Wilsonart, a leading manufacturer of decorative surfaces, is also sponsor of the “Wilsonart Challenges” student design scholarship program to foster the careers of emerging furniture designers in North America. In its 10th year, this competition challenges students at a designated design school to create a unique chair that uses Wilsonart Laminate to answer a specific design challenge.

Wilsonart selected the College of Architecture at the University of Houston to host the 2014 Challenge. The competition unfolds as a semester-long course, this year taught by Professor Jeff Feng and Grace Jeffers, design historian and materials specialist. The students were taught about laminate, its history, technical capabilities, current market trends and sustainability issues as well as the history of chairs as decorative art forms.

I found it very impressive that Wilsonart is challenging students to work with their product and also choose to present that at ICFF instead of only showing their product.

BlogtourNYC sponsor Wilsonart presenteerde de winnaar Infinite by Jenny Trieu en de “runners – up” van de Wilsonart studenten stoelontwerp wedstrijd op ICFF .

Wilsonart, een toonaangevende fabrikant van decoratieve materialen in Amerika, is ook sponsor van het “Wilsonart Challenges” studenten ontwerp scholarship programma om de carrières van opkomende meubelontwerpers in Noord-Amerika te bevorderen.  Inmiddels al 10 jaar, daagt deze wedstrijd studenten van een uitgekozen design opleiding uit, om een unieke stoel te ontwerpen waarin gebruik gemaakt wordt van Wilsonart Laminaat .

Wilsonart selecteerde het College of Architecture aan de Universiteit van Houston om de 2014 Challenge organiseren. De wedstrijd besloeg een geheel semester, dit jaar gegeven door professor Jeff Feng en Grace Jeffers , design historicus en materialen specialist. De leerlingen kregen les over laminaat: de geschiedenis, technische mogelijkheden, de huidige marktontwikkelingen en duurzaamheidsaspecten, alsmede de geschiedenis van stoelen als decoratieve kunstvormen.



Ik vind het heel indrukwekkend dat Wilsonart studenten uitdaagt om met hun product te werken en er voor kiest om deze ontwerpen te presenteren op ICFF in plaats enkel hun product.
