Sometimes it’s truly the little things that pack the biggest punch, especially when it comes to designs that simplify. Doug Mockett & Company, Inc. recently announced the winners of its 25th annual Doug Mockett & Company Design Contest, which calls upon designers to create unique and innovative ideas for furniture parts, components, accessories, and hardware and compete for an unlimited number of First Place prizes.
This year, four winners were chosen (all were from the United States) and each will receive a $1000 cash prize, an engraved achievement trophy, and a royalty based on sales:
Eric Coursey of Skandia, MI, for “Node”, a wire manager that gathers multiple wires at a central point and gently curves them around the edge of a desk.
Entries are now open for the 2011 Competition. Designers can send their entries via Registered Return Receipt or FEDEX to: Contest Administrator, Doug Mockett & Company, Inc., P.O. Box 3333, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, call (310) 318-2491 and ask for the Contest Administrator. Deadline is September 6, 2011.
