Waste for Life and Mut-Architecture won 4th place for the Cartonero BackFlip Chair in the One Good Chair design competition sponsored by The Sustainable Furnishings Council and World Market Center Las Vegas. The contest’s challenge was this:
Design an original chair that embodies and enhances a particular place, anywhere in the world but one you know and love, even if you don’t live there. We hope to see ideas from across the globe. Your concept might reinterpret local customs or start from scratch, but either way it should stimulate a tangible sense of belonging to its cultural and natural context. Demonstrate visually and verbally how your design springs from local conditions.
