Deadline for Submissions Extended to Midnight, May 5th, 2013.
Teknion and Evergreen are pleased to announce a call for proposals for the 2nd annual Design by Nature event. Design by Nature is a juried competition that promotes innovative functional furniture and public art through a re-imagination of salvaged materials.
Last year’s finalists produced a wonderful array of art and furniture for the site and we are looking forward to keeping the momentum going. These public pieces must incorporate at least 50% existing, recycled or salvaged materials to reflect the site’s sustainability mandate.
DxN offers a $2500 honourarium to all finalists to help cover the costs of production, along with excellent exposure. Final pieces will be exhibited at the Evergreen Brick Works over the summer of 2013.
The emphasis this year will be on functional furniture – the Brick Works can always use more places to sit, eat, relax and enjoy the amazing wonders of the site.
How to Submit: Interested candidates may submit proposals online. For more details, read the judging criteria and FAQ’s. You may also sign up for a private tour of the site on April 16th at 5:00 pm.
