Wilsonart Student Chair Design Competition Exhibition

An exhibition of work by students enrolled in the Fall 2017 Chair Making course. This annual national design competition is hosted by a different educational institution each year, with Maine College of Art receiving the honor to serve as the host institution for the 2018-19 academic year. Following an intensive semester of working with representatives from Wilsonart on all aspects of design – from renderings to model-making – each student developed a final chair prototype to be evaluated by a jury of professionals working in the fields of design, including representatives from Wilsonart, Metropolis, and Dwell. The winning chair and 5 runners-up receive an all-expense paid trip to NYC and the opportunity to showcase their work with Wilsonart at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
