Wilsonart International (www.Wilsonart.com) is a leading manufacturer of decorative surfaces for more than 50 years. Wilsonart Challenge is a student design competition Wilsonart International sponsors different design schools annually. In fall 2013, we are very excited to be selected to host this competition in University of Houston. The competition is to create seating products that celebrate the richness of Wilsonart International’s laminate surfacing materials. In this challenge, students will have an opportunity to design and build a unique chair. The chair must be built in full scale and be able to support 400 pounds. Each student is responsible to build their own chair.
