The Nature Conservancy, in conjunction with the Forest Stewardship Council, is sponsoring a materials-based design competition aimed squarely at industrial designers, furniture designers and architects.
The Going with the Grain Challenge is to design an original and compelling object that can be made from a single sheet of FSC-certified plywood measuring 4-feet x 8-feet x 1-inch.
Entries must be flat-pack designs using nor hardware or glue, which ought to make things tricky but interesting. The deadline is June 2nd, with the results to be announced just two weeks later. Click here for more information.
