Now in its seventh year, this annual competition invites architecture and interior design students in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to showcase their creativity through original furniture designs that feature Formica® Brand products.
This year, Formica reflects on 110 years of Formica® with a challenge that asks students to submit a color rendering and project statement of a furniture design that interprets "newstalgia" — a trending aesthetic that blends retro and vintage design with a fresh, modern take. Through their design, students are asked to use their creativity when defining what "newstalgia" means to them, bridging classic with new.
Within their designs, students must include two or more Formica® Laminate patterns and at least one color of FENIX® Innovative Materials. The grand prizewinner will receive a $2,000 cash award and their design will be fabricated and displayed during NeoCon 2024 in Chicago. The second-place winner will be awarded $1,000 and the third-place winner will receive $500. The top three winners also will be invited to attend NeoCon as guests of Formica Corporation for the opportunity to network with industry professionals and get a taste of the design community. A distinguished panel of industry and design professionals will judge the student submissions
