Students Take Award at Design Quest 2011 Furniture Competition
Grand Rapidsā?? company Design Quest offered $2000 in prizes for innovative furniture design, and the public was invited to help award the Peoplesā?? Choice Prize during the opening reception on March 17.
The rules were simple: No limitations on material or type of furniture; however, the furniture had to function as furniture.
This year's competition had a record number of submissions from 30 countries. Only 20% of the entries moved on to the final round of judging.
Capturing the Peoplesā?? Choice Award were Kendall senior Industrial Design majors Emily Knight and Corey Barnes for their Eclipse Table.
