Design Within Reach held a contest to see what kind of a chair people could make using nothing but the foil, wire, and cork from two champagne bottles.
A friend of mine and I always laugh and ask "Within Reach of whom?" because their stuff really isn't all that cheap. They do have a great line, though, and this is a really awesome contest. I wish they'd shown more of the entries on their website, but I guess we'll just have to go to see them in person. I might haul myself all the way over to Brooklyn tonight except that it's like -20° out there at this point. And it would appear to be tonight only that they're on display.
It's hard also to get a feeling of scale, but they must be incredibly tiny if they're carved out of a champagne cork, etc...but the entries look SO precise. I just don't know how they did it.
