Joseph's Chair Wins 3rd Place at Ambassadors of Design Ball 2010 / by Billy Potts

Very happy to hear that Joseph has just won 3rd place at this year's Ambassadors of Design Ball with his design, 'the Skinny'.

The skinny is made of bent aluminum, heat bent lexan plastic and rubber washers. It was built by hand and Joseph says his aim was to push the properties of the materials to their boundaries to create a chair that is functional even though it appears to be impractical.

The Ambassadors of Design collective aims to raise awareness of creativity and design in Hong Kong and it hosts an annual open competition. This year's competition theme was 'Chairs' and it saw many wonderful designs from Hong Kong designers as well as contributions from internationally renowned talents such as Zaha Hadid, Kelly Hoppen, and Thomas Heatherwick who partook by providing their chair designs for an auction on the night of the ball.

Congratulations Joseph!
