Inspiration is everywhere. For example: where are you right now? Yes you, reading this. Are you sitting on a chair? At a table perhaps?
If you are, why not take inspiration from your surroundings and enter this brand new competition the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities has launched.
Table & Chair will see artists across the Kingdom recycle or upcycle the furniture staples in their own creative way.
BACA wants artists to take into consideration form, function and ergonomics in their submissions, which should also reflect research, data collected and the design process.
Entrants are also encouraged to submit “innovative, sustainable and versatile” options.
Writing about the competition, BACA said, “We chose the ‘table & chair’ as the design object because they have the greatest capacity of any individual furniture to ‘reinvent’ themselves.”
