Vellum Furniture Competition 7.0

November 11, 2010 § 1 Comment

Just over a week ago we had what I consider one of the most exciting events of the year: the Vellum Furniture Competition. Students from Cal Poly’s College of Architecture hand-craft a number of furniture pieces and showcase downtown. Judges are usually local and out of town architects, craftsman, artists, etc. (A couple years ago in my usual brutalist, ugly/beautiful aesthetic submitted this number made of reused steel tubing and keyboards).

Here are a few photos from the event, including the program for the event which I designed this year.

First, a few of the winners:

Two pieces by one designer: the grand prize was a lounge made from a semi’s fender and a lamp from its air vent. Behind it is a coffee table that won a prize, too. The 2nd image is my favorite project from the show: grungy old lockers “re-lined” with new wood, closed with unique new elements, and lights.

A tall bike with a generator so that when you pedal, it lights up the bulb and you can use the typewriter.

This was the outside of the program. Imagine it folded hot dog style.

Oh right. Then Rory and I proceeded to cube all sorts of hard (timer and earmuffs as blindfold) at the new coffee shop in town, Kreuzberg.
