Announcing the Top 5 Finalists in the Live/Work Contest.

LiveWork_logo_Grey-RGB

In February, we announced that we were teaming up with Dwell magazine for the Live/Work Design Contest, challenging up-and-coming designers to create a new home-office solution that DWR could potentially manufacture and sell. The response from designers was overwhelming – we received 587 entries! Together with Dwell, we narrowed them down to 10 finalists and then opened up voting to the public. We exhibited the top 10 finalists at our booth at WantedDesign, a satellite exhibit that coincides with ICFF, and using iPads, attendees cast their vote for their favorite design. Now, with a little more than a week until the grand-prize announcement, we have chosen the top 5 entries.

In no particular order, they are ...
