Design talents! Two new opportunities for you. First, super design-savvy marketplace Fab.com is on a hunt for great new designers. They have a jury seeing people at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Bring your samples, your portfolio, your plans or ideas for this competition. You need to impress judges like Fab's founder and chief design officer Bradford Shellhammer or Dan Rubinstein, editor in chief of Surface magazine among others. They want to see things that are "high quality and be a functional object made through handcrafted, high-tech and/or experimental processes."
To register, send your name and country to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then show up at the ICFF show at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Center (must be registered to attend) on May 21st, 1 PM to 3 PM. If you register for the show today, you can skip the $60 fee.
BOFFO is a project that brings fashion designers, architects, artists and other disciplines together for pop-up collaborations. The latest a competition to design and produce a retail installation in collaboration with fashion designer Michael Bastian. Your base is a shipping container on Pier 57 near the Hudson River.
