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.
