MCAD Annual Design Competition


For the 12th Annual Room & Board Design Competition, students from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) were asked to create an original accent table that featured creative storage, eye-catching design and functional usability.

After a panel of design experts judged the entries, the five finalists and their designs were:

  • Zoe Chmielarczyk, Pallet
  • Madeline Strand, Quady
  • Adam Sagar, Spiral Rival
  • Carly Haack, Stagger
  • Molly Gerner-Puff, Yokota

The final five designs were displayed in our Edina store, where customers voted on their favorite. After last night’s award ceremony, there was a tie for first place, which has only happened once before in the last 12 years. Zoe and Molly were both named first place winners and were each awarded $3,000. Their designs will also be considered for Room & Board’s 2016 collection.

Congratulations to all the participants and winners; we can’t wait to see what you come up with next year!
