Coalesse® Announces Winners of the Carl Hansen & Son Blank Canvas Contest
Entries were received from Architects and Designers around the country
Coalesse, the leader in bringing new life to work, is pleased to announce the winners of the first ever Carl Hansen & Son Blank Canvas Contest in conjunction with Designtex. Architects and Designers were challenged to release their inner artists and create their own unique fabric design for the CH468 Oculus chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner, from Carl Hansen & Son.
A panel of industry judges selected the Grand Prize Winner based on a variety of criteria including application, creativity, and viability. Samantha Gotta, a designer from Archideas Inc. in Chicago, IL received top honors for her design, Cattletail – a graphic black and white pattern that boasts a unique look from every angle. Her prize will be a trip to the Carl Hansen & Son factory in Denmark and a CH468 Oculus chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner, with her fabric design digitally printed by Designtex Surface Imaging.
Second place was determined by a popular vote on Instagram in which the top two runner-up entries competed for the most “likes” and the competition was fierce. The winner, Rebecca Christy, Designer from Interprise in Addison, TX was selected for her design– a digital waterfall of pixelated splashes of color cascading over the white canvas of the CH468 Oculus chair. For her winning design, Rebecca will receive four CH88 chairs designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.
