GREEN Student Work on Display in San Fran

Hey Green Design fans in San Fran April 16th -- Check this out...

Join the participants of the class on April 16th at Zinc Details (2410 California St.), from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, for the first-ever CCA Eco-Chair Design Competition as they showcase their final projects-affordable and sustainable chair designs-before a diverse panel of judges, including David Edwards, Kimberly Ryder, Peter Stathis, Zoe Melo, Vladimir Kagan, and Chris Deam. Guests are welcome to test out all the chairs first-hand, enter their vote for the People's Choice Award category, and enjoy great food, drinks, and live music.

In the spirit of looking and planning toward a sustainable future, as well as promoting young design talent, Bevara Design House teamed up with CCA this past fall to curate the first of an ongoing series of classes geared toward designing environment-, space-, and cost-conscious furniture design in an increasingly urban world. The idea was to foster the growth of fresh ideas in furniture design by partnering with a reputable academic institution and providing the bridge between young talent and the marketplace. The latter was where Wal-Mart.com came in, lending its critique as a major retailer with valuable input about marketing, production, and sustainability-and ultimately, promising to reward one lucky student with the chance to see his or her design through to real-world production by being awarded a manufacturing and retail deal with Wal-Mart.com

"We were thoroughly impressed by the quality of work and conceptual creativity expressed by these individuals in their drive toward sustainable, practical design. Their passion and innovation are reassuring signs for the future of the industry," said Stacy Jorgensen, President, Bevara Design House.
