REHAU is a leading systems and service provider for polymer-based solutions in construction, automotive and other industries. Open to undergraduate college and university students in the U.S. and Canada, the competition invited participants to create furniture concepts for commercial, residential, kitchen or office applications that featured REHAU edgeband and tambour door products.
Boogaard designed a receptionist’s desk that was chosen by a panel of industry jurors as the clear winner. She’ll receive a $1,500 award, and her design will be constructed and put on display at REHAU’s Grand Rapids distribution office.
