For over 10 years, Design Within Reach has been holding their annual Champagne Chair Contest. The rules are simple: create a miniature chair, 4” max, using only the materials from a champagne bottle cork- the foil, label, cage and cork- from no more than 2 bottles. It began as fun project in the office and when they extended the design invitation to the public, the idea exploded!
The winners were chosen a few weeks ago and here are the finalists for this year. The First Place winner is the Crescent Chair (the one in the center), designed by Bruce Hirschman. Love it!
