Are you the next great furniture designer? Are your friends always telling you “Hey! Your work is so good it should be sold in stores all over the world!” If yes, then you just might be interested in a contest by Dwell and Design Within Reach: Live/Work Design Contest, which is challenging the world’s most creative up-and-coming designers to design a workspace “classic of tomorrow” – a new home-office solution that Design Within Reach could potentially manufacture and sell. Dwell will serve as host to the DWR-sponsored contest through the end of June. The lucky (and probably talented) grand prize winner will be announced in Los Angeles in June at Dwell on Design, the West Coast’s largest design fair.
So what exactly are Dwell and DWR looking for? Product and furniture designs in the home-office space that employ materials of integrity and solve productivity challenges while mixing business with pleasure.
“We’re looking for a product or furniture idea that is destined to be a future live/work staple,” says Dwell’s Editor-in-Chief Amanda Dameron. “This is an amazing opportunity for an under-the-radar or established designer to see a project realized.”
Dwell will accept online only submissions through March 31, 2012, so you should maybe get on that. Submit today!
