The Phoenix Contemporary Design Fair (PCDF) and kontakt magazine invite independent furniture designers to submit original furniture designs for a design competition. Conceived as a way to connect talented independent designers with furniture resellers and a design savvy public, finalists’ submissions will be displayed in a special section at PCDF and selected designers will be featured in kontakt magazine.
A panel consisting of furniture store buyers, interior designers, architects and kontakt magazine editors will review designs. The top ten designs selected will be displayed at PCDF, April 18-20, 2008. Awards will be given for best overall design and people’s choice, based on voting by attendees of PCDF.
To be considered, designers are asked to submit a completed entry form, up to three photo prints of product prototype, and supporting information including a biography. The Design Competition is open to any independent designer, as well as design students. Up to three submissions will be accepted from an individual or team of collaborators.
The deadline is March 14 and information and registration forms are available on www.pcdf08.com.
