I entered the Moleskin 2.0 Exhibition contest. My idea is to use the fore-edge of the notebook. When you fold the notebook length-wise (when the spine practically touches the long edge of the back cover), the fore-edge of the pages fan out. Only when the notebook is folded this way, does a subway map clearly appear. This is due to the fact that the map is printed on the edge while the notebook is positioned like this. You can hide the fact that you are consulting a subway map and be spared the embarrassment and scorn from locals. It’s easier to show you than to explain it.

Congrats to all of the Spring Greening Winners.
Rodrigo Jaroseski’s Phonebook Coffee Table was the grand prize winner. Kumvana Gomani got second for Recycled Plastic Jewelry. And my personal favorite, Richard Jennions’s Book Book Shelf, got third place.
This was a fun little contest. Thanks Inhabitat for putting it together.
I went to the DWR Champagne Cork Chair show on Wednesday in SoHo. It was really cool, and hey free booze. My chair was placed closest to the front door, so it was the first thing you saw. Very cool.
I met Tony Nemyer’s (the staff pick winner) father-in-law at the show. Very nice guy. He got Tony on the phone and my sister (who had a couple of glasses of champagne) proceeded to chat to him for some time. Open bar.

So I didn’t win the Design Within Reach Champagne Chair Contest, but it was a honor being nominated. Here are the winners:
Jesse Menayan’s Kub Armchair won the Judges’ Pick
Tony Nemyer’s Grape Divine Chair won the DWR Staff Pick
Gavri Slasky’s Spring 2009 won the Popular Vote.
Actually, I voted for the Grape Divine Chair. I really like the base, I wonder if he turned it.
I’m a finalist in a design contest, the Design Within Reach Champagne Cork Chair contest to be exact.
The goal was to design a small little chair model from nothing but the cork, wire, and wrapper from a bottle of champagne. A little strange I know, but a fun little project.
There will be three winners, the Grand Prize, the Staff Pick, and the Popular Vote. The Popular Vote is where you come in.
Please go here and cast your vote for your favorite chair. Mine is the fifth one down, the “Turned Cork Stool”.
If you like a chair more than mine, just lie to me and say you voted for me.
Also, if you have multiple computers, you can vote multiple times (once at work and once at home).
And feel free to pass this along to anybody, the more the merrier.
If you tell two friends, and then they tell two friends, and… well you see where I’m going with this.
