At the very first meeting of the group that founded AIGA, each person had to bring his own chair. Inspired by this nugget of history and the powerful resonance of the chair as an object of design, AIGA national is holding a contest and exhibition, asking each chapter to customize a chair. (Real Good chairs, generously donated by Blu Dot). Seven initial chairs were displayed at “Head, Heart, Hand” in Minneapolis this past October.
Below you’ll see the candidates specially designed by various firms for our Brand Central chapter. Beautiful! The Brand Central board will be picking a winner from this group to represent our chapter at the upcoming exhibition and auction.
