Andrew Richard Designs – one of our favourite outdoor furniture design studio and store not just in Toronto but all of Canada – has teamed up with Canadian House & Home Magazine to find the next design star; someone passionate but non-professional…yet, at least.
ARD – owned by Andrew Bockner (the A) and one of our Grey Goose Notables – and Canadian House & Home are looking for an aspiring designer to deliver a uniquely original outdoor lounge chair design. The winning design will need to have full attention to detail, everything from measurements and special angles to production details and unique materials. All applicants must show a strong understanding of their design and the principles with which it was conceived, as well giving the chair an all-encompassing name.
The winning chair will be showcased at The Interior Design Show (IDS12) from January 26th to 29th, 2012, capturing the attention of more than 50,000 top tier design professionals and savvy consumers alike. Needless to say, the winning chair will undoubtedly be a knock-out. The winning designer will also be awarded a $1,500 cash prize, a pair of their specially designed lounge chairs with a coordinating side table, and a three-month internship opportunity at Andrew Richard Designs to help foster their career and provide the chance to learn from the masters.
