the d&ad student awards were announced at the end of june. while the awards mainly covers graphic and advertising work some product designs and furniture were also honoured. the furniture design prize went to charlotte kingsnorth of buckinghamshire new university for her sofa ‘one’. inspired by the artwork of jenny saville and the media coverage of obesity, kingsnorth crafted this sofa. a simple beech wood framed is “devoured” by its obese occupant, or in this case an upholstered cushion. the brief was for vitra editions, asking for furniture that is “unencumbered by commercial constraints and pushes the boundaries of innovative furniture design”. a gallery of all winners is available through flickr.
