International Home + Housewares Show - March 2-5 in Chicago
At the end of January, ten professional designers met at the IHA office to review 256 entries from U.S. and international universities. They selected six top winners and five honorable mentions. The judging panel was composed of industrial design professors, design consultants and design managers.
The winners will be at the show to explain their concepts for products of the future.
Jonathon Kemnitzer stated, "In my second year judging this competition, I was again impressed by the students' concepts and ingenuity. With so many entries it was difficult to choose the winners; I hope these students continue to follow their passions and pursue a career in the field of design."
