Seating Design from IFDA 2008

Barca by Jakob Joergensen (Denmark)

The 2008 International Furniture Design Competition Asahikawa (IFDA) received 1,085 entries from 50 countries.

One of the most restrictive rule of the contest was: “Works (cabinets, tables, chairs and others) entered must be newly created and previously unpublished. “Unpublished” means that the work has never appeared on the market as a product, has never appeared in a newspaper, magazine, or exhibition, and has never been a winner in other competitions before the sponsor announces the results of the main selection process (please refrain from entering this competition and other competitions at the same time.)

Meditation Bench by Sehwa Bae (Korea)

A work which has appeared in student exhibitions is considered unpublished. Works are considered “wooden” when their major component parts are made of wood.”

Below are some highlights :

Star Chair by Sam-woong Lee (Korea):

Low Swivel Lounge by Nicholas Dodziuk (USA):

Kerf Bend Chair by Takeshi Daimon (Japan):

Chair Yoda by Jaenah Jung and Sungbum Wi (Korea):
