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!
