Throwback Thursday: Ladies and Gentlemen, start your Champagne Chairs!
On the cover of our April 2004 catalog, we toasted the success of our first DWR Champagne Chair Contest. This year’s contest starts tomorrow, which means that you now have a great reason to crack open the bubbly tonight (or right now … it’s the holidays, after all). In general, designers, it works like this: Make a miniature chair using only the wire cage, foil, paper and cork from no more than two champagne bottles. Seems simple enough, but check the official rules before you rush ahead and risk wasting a perfectly good bottle, if that’s even possible. Then uncork your creativity and raise a toast to great design!
