Plywood Challenge

I've been shopping for a new desk.

Then I read about a design competition sponsored by More Branding to design a desk from a single sheet of plywood.

Thus the name: 4 x 8.

It was so much fun they decided to invite others from the Tulsa design community to participate. Fifteen entries were received the first day.  What started out as a simple office project to replace some desks has turned into a full-blown, hard-core, design throwdown. The call for entries has gone out (and reprinted when they ran out) and come January we'll see just how creative T-Town really is. But wait...

There is more.

To top it off a showcase and silent auction will be held March 2012. The proceeds from each desk will benefit the school of each designer's choice! As of yet the location is yet to be determined- but if the pace of entries continue I'm thinking airplane hanger.

So now I'm thinking it's time to design my own desk. Or maybe I'll wait and see what turns up and just buy one at the auction in March. Either way it sounds like a win-win.
