Design experts deliberated over chair prototypes designed by industrial design students as part of a juried competition Feb. 10 in collaboration with Wilsonart International. The students were required to use Wilsonart laminate in their chair designs. Jurors pictured from left to right are Wendell Castle, RIT artist-in-residence and furniture designer; Ron Labaco, senior curator at the Museum of Arts and Design; Grace Jeffers, project manager for the Wilsonart Challenge; and Allan Chochinov, editor-in-chief of Core 77. Jurors selected six student designs, including Dan Kestler’s design (foreground) which conjoins two Adirondack chairs, to be featured at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City in May.
