Table Design Contest Hospitality Design 2011

Travel


Introduction FurnitureLabTM has been putting graphics on tables for close to twenty years. At our first tradeshow, we pitched the idea of creating completely custom designed tables for restaurants or any kind of project. The reaction wasn’t what we expected: “That’s nice, but do you have anything I can choose from?”

As artistic and creative people, this response never dawned on us, because we couldn’t imagine what would be better than a completely custom table! But we realized that not everyone can come up with table designs easily, so we slowly developed an extensive library of graphic designs customers could choose from. We created designs around popular themes like coffee, food, and sports. We also developed graphic patterns which, like all of our designs, can be adapted to any color scheme.

We have been passionate about custom tables since the day we started because they let you make something that is truly unique. They can be anything you want them to be-colorful, artistic, commercial, or educational. The only limit to what they can be is imagination itself. This contest has been such a great and inspiring process! It reminds us that tables can do more than just support plates and elbows, they can be a medium for expression, communication and a way to make a place special. Gregory Rapp President FurnitureLab

This contest presented a specific design challenge: design a table with the theme of travel. It was really exciting to see all the different designs that came in and how everyone interpreted the concept in their own way. We had a lot of colorful, vibrant designs along with some more low-key ones. There were a lot of designs that incorporated photographs in various ways ranging from large single images to collages of multiple images.

The Contest

To judge the competition, we assigned each design a random identification number and put them before a team of 9 judges who had no other information about who did the designs or where they came from. They ranked each design for the following qualities and assigned points as follows:

Concept 1-10 points: How well does this design illustrate the concept of “travel”?

Aesthetics 1-10: How aesthetically pleasing is the design?

“Tableness” 1-5: How well would this design function as a table?

In the pages that follow you will see the winning design, ten designs that received an Honorable Mention, followed by all of the other entrants displayed in no particular sequence.

Anderson Design Studio | Nashville, TN No matter who travels in this world, money is always at the heart of it. It affects what type of travel you do, how far you go, how long you’re gone, what you do while you’re gone, what you eat, and what you bring back with you; whether its tangibile or memories that last a lifetime.

Emily Gosselin Creative Office Pavilion | Watertown, MA When I think of travel, its not just the places I’ve been but how I get there, the things I bring, the memories I make, and the photos to capture it. Figuring out where to go on the map, and having what I need to get me there is all part of the experience.
