Boh staff

The IFDA Educational Foundation is seeking design grads to apply for its Cliff Young Ltd. 2017 Contemporary-Modern Furniture Student Design Competition

“The challenge is to create a classic piece of modern furniture,” says the organization, and it names the qualities it is seeking in winning designs: “Classical references, clean design, sophisticated details, innovative combinations of finishes, textures, materials. Hip and edgy, warm and organic, comfort, timeless simplicity (not minimal), functionality and aesthetics within a modern lifestyle.” 

The prize is $3,000, plus a trip to New York in September 2017 to attend the awards ceremony at What’s New What’s Next. The winning design may also be produced.

Find the full description at and apply by February 28, 2017.
