3rd annual form follows x mmcité7
november 19, 2018
We supported the third edition of an annual competition for talented students from the College of Environmental Design at Berkeley to design the best seating system. We were involved in the event not just as the main sponsors, but also as members of the panel of judges in the first round of the competition. The theme of the event tied in with our company philosophy of functional design — durable but meaningful outdoor furniture whose character brings people closer to their city surroundings. Five final designs from the first round were produced in full scale and exhibited at Wurster Hall on UC Berkeley campus. Faculty of the CED, students and the general public had the opportunity to vote on the top three. The overall winners were Eric Granum in first place, second place went to a group of students comprising Hong Xiang Chen, Fang Xu and Zhiyaoshu, and Dandan Lui took third place. All the designs from the final will be displayed at Wurster Hall until 20 December 2018.
Once again, congratulations to the winners. We are already looking forward to next year!
