DWR Champagne Chair Contest group

STUDIOS Participates in the 18th Annual Design Within Reach Champagne Chair Contest

DATEFebruary 01, 2022

Results are in for the 2022 Design Within Reach Champagne Chair Contest — a great competition promoting the practice of creative reuse in our field. Designers were invited to re-imagine a champagne cork as a miniature chair model. Renewable, recyclable, and 100% biodegradable, cork is an exceptional green building material. Its modern applications have ranged from tile flooring to exterior facades.

STUDIOS’ Stuart Doyle submitted a concept for a simple, clean-line chair that celebrates the natural shape and texture of the cork. He says, “As a real-scale chair, I see the form as one easily understood and inviting, something everyone feels comfortable approaching.”

Funds from the contest support Office Hours, a socially engaged initiative championing BIPOC designers. See all of the entries and winners here.
