The Chair Show is the public exhibition of the Industrial Design second-year studio chair project. It is also a design competition judged by a panel of noteworthy local design professionals from companies such as Umbra, Borgo and Nienkamper. The four winning designs (first, second, third and people’s choice) will be announced during the evening of the show.
The Chair Show is attended by more than 300 people each year, including design professionals, industry insiders, students, family and friends. Interviews, photo and video opportunities will be available.
The show is open to the public and admission is free. Raffle tickets are available to purchase with prizes that include designer chairs.
The theme of this year's Chair Show is Humanscale Learning Spaces. Humber’s second-year Industrial Design studio class have designed chairs with other students in mind. What do students in educational institutions like a college or university need from the furniture they use? Can a lounge chair become an effective workstation? That’s the question the Industrial Design students sought to answer.
