Grand Rapids Chair Co. Announces Winner of its Design Contest

 

Congratulations to Charles Brill for his winning design, "College Ruled," in the "Amanda: Put Your Back Into It" design contest. The innovative concept reminisces youth and the free spirit of young adulthood. 

Explaining his design, Brill writes, "The chair back design for Grand Rapids Chair Company begins at the most pure medium to express yourself-college ruled notebook paper. Sketches, notes, love letters, journal entries all symbolize the emotional levitation occurring as one progresses through young adulthood. The end product represents the creative spirit and adventurous attitude resembled through notebooks of young minded students and visionaries."

This unique concept of a design is a playful adaptation of the Amanda chair that could be used throughout classrooms, study lounges, libraries, waiting rooms and college campuses. 

Kraig Kessel, one of the contest's selected judges, explains "I liked the overall concept in terms of how well it would fit into an educational environment, not to mention that the extendibility of the idea is quite strong. The notion of having various executions of the chair (i.e., math equations, love letters, journal entries, etc.) is a great idea."

Brill's design will be featured in Grand Rapids Chair Co.'s booth at the 2007 HD Boutique show in Miami Beach in September.
