Our New York City team kicked off 2016 by participating in the Design Within Reach Champagne Chair ChallengeTM — an annual competition to create the most original miniature chair design out of materials (except glass) from no more than two champagne bottles, with glue as the only permitted adhesive. CannonDesigners came up with 15 amazing ideas, but an internal vote ruled the landslide winner as #15, the Game of Thrones-inspired “Winter is Coming.” Check out all of our designs below, and cheers to a happy, healthy 2016.
