eVolo Magazine, an architectural and design journal focused on innovative design, announced the winners of its 2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition. The magazine received 233 entries from 34 different countries. A panel of five designers selected three winners with 20 honorable mentions.
First place went to the Fabric Chair designed by I-Ting Tsai, Xixi Zheng, Yiru Yun, and Somdatta Majumdar of the U.K. The chair utilized a special resin to harden fabric placed on a rigid mold. It then allowed the fabric to become structural while retaining its softness in specific locations.
Studio La Cube from Spain was awarded second place for its project, Simmis Chair. Symmetry, proportions, and a dialogue between visual lightness and the strength and heaviness of wood and steel were the focuses here.
Third place was awarded to Open Source Workshop for the design of Helix, a diffuse furniture system that generates a continuous interior space by adapting simultaneously to any vertical and horizontal surface while defining an immersive spatial atmosphere.
