Each year, Design With Reach chair shop organizes the Annual Champagne Chair Contest, a fun design competition that has two conditions. Only champagne corks can be used to create the chair. And no more than two bottle of champagne.
Last year, the winner issued a minimalistic chair modeled after the traditional African rest chair. This year, the trend was to more modern design and the grand prize was given to Adam Weisgerber of Seattle, Washington for his Cantilever chair (upper left).
Unfortunately, those chairs are just for the eye, they’re not prototypes for future models at a human size scale. We wish it, though. Cork is a good material that can be easily found in Western countries. How about getting one of those other chairs, all great although they didn’t win.
