Awards:

  • Design Within Reach (a designer furniture company) holds an annual competition called the Champagne Chair Contest. I entered in 2014 and won 2nd place. The rules were to use any parts of a champagne bottle (except the glass) to create a chair less than 4”. Mine is based on the Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls. The Nesting Chair starts with a champagne bubble made of the foil and wire cage, inside of that is the cork sliced in half with a chair shaped negative space, next is a chair shaped box made out of the label and lastly, a ½” tall chair that fits in the box.http://blog.dwr.com/2014/01/31/pop-the-champagne-winners-have-been-chosen/
