The Great Chair Challenge

End Date: 1/6/2014

Event Description
The Great Chair Challenge

The Great Chair Challenge is a design competition that takes derelict chairs, destined for the landfill, and recycles them into functional chairs or art. The project was developed to give 2 year Interior Design Students an opportunity to compete in a "hands on" challenge that showcases the Principals and Elements of Design, as well reinforcing the idea of sustainability. Students are asked to complete the challenge using as many recycled and donated items as possible, while staying within a pre-determined budget. Judges, who are professionals from the Art and Interior Design community, judge the recycled chairs based on a rubric that was designed for this challenge. The winners receive certificates, along with fame and glory, and have a finished product that can be added to their portfolios. Students can then auction off their chairs as a fundraiser for the NVCC Interior Design Club.

The first Great Chair Challenge was held during the 2012/2013 school year. It won the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) national award for "Best Fundraiser" by a student chapter.

From January 6 to February 7, 2014.
