Doug Mockett & Company Design Competition Blue RibbonANNUAL DESIGN CONTEST


 

24th ANNUAL DESIGN CONTEST - 2009 WINNERS!

2009 was the first year we accepted entries via email. We had more than 60 of them via email and a grand total of 120. Usually we get about 100, so in a down economy it was gratifying to see a 20% increase. And entries from all over the world, from every continent. So maybe almost halfway through its second decade, our little competition is making its mark!
The judges found two entries to be worthy of First Place.

 

Shelf Support 

John O’Connor, Griffith, IN

John designed an extraordinary extruded aluminum shelf support. As he said in his submission, “... simple architectural form creates an eye-catching and pleasing design”.
It will be about 6” by 8” overall in size and quite sturdy. It can be used with either the 6” or 8” side as the support, to accommodate shelves up to 10” wide. We think we’ll bevel the edges and make it available in a nice satin anodized finish as well as matte black. It is in tooling now and available January 2011.
 

 

 

Jeffrey Bolen, Marina del Rey, CA

Perhaps we’ve been at the furniture parts biz too long. There aren’t too many table leg designs that elicit a “wow!” from our long time judges. (Or maybe we’ve had the judges too long?).
Jeffrey, an architect, sent in a leg design that was a “WOW!”. It is very unique.
Made of stainless steel and dark wood with stainless fasteners, with a stepped design that is broad at the top and steps down to almost a point.
Perfect for your contemporary furniture designs! We will be offering it on a custom basis, so we can make it to your exact dimension, stainless finish, wood choice, and wood finish.
