EASA participants build designer chairs from DEX

Dex - EASA Competition - Chair2

DEX Workspaces gives EASA participants the chance to build Vitra chairs from recyclable materials

DEX Workspaces and EASA (European Architecure Students Assembly) Malta are teaming up to offer 30 architecture students the opportunity to build their favourite Vitra designer chair out of recyclable waste material provided by WasteServe Malta. The group of participants who designs the best chair will win a set of Vitra Miniatures and Vitra Design books.

The Vitra Re-Chair competition sponsored by DEX is one of the activities taking place during EASA. This two-week event gathers over 500 architecture students and young professionals from all over Europe, as well as other parts of the world, to participate in a series of interactive workshops and lectures. The 2015 assembly will take place in Malta, and runs from 31 July to 16 August.

The competition will be held on Tuesday, 4 August, and begins at 09.00. Following a 30-minute briefing, the participants – individually or in pairs – will have from 09.30 until noon to choose a design concept and build a chair using the recyclable materials and tools provided, as well as posters of signature Vitra designer chairs for inspiration.

At the end of the competition, the chairs will be presented to a panel of judges representing DEX Workspaces and EASA, who will judge the quality of the final products on a number of criteria, including: creative and efficient use of the materials provided, similarity to the original chair, stability, and overall look. The judges will announce the winner of the competition and the final prize will be presented by DEX.
