Winners have been announced and Flying M Boise and Nampa will host a traveling show of some of the highlights of this years' entries.
Introduced in 2007, the Re:Use cup challenge was created for furniture design enthusiasts who wish to express themselves but are unable to enter a full-size entry in the Chair Affair.
Inspired by the Re:Use market - opened in Boise in 2006 and recently reopened at a new location in November 2011- and the growing awareness within our industry for conservation and reuse of materials, we made it a requirement of the challenge to take the components of an everyday, thrown away item and artistically Re:Use them.
The parameters are simple:
Visit your favorite local coffee shop. Order a 12 ounce hot beverage to-go and enjoy. Re:Use the expired drink cup, lid, stir-stick and insulated sleeve to create a miniature chair. Cut, tear, rip, glue… and then marvel at your brilliant design!
