Are you interesting in digital design, fabrication and cool furniture? Brooklyn-based design studio FLATCUT_ and ACADIA (The Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture) have announced an international call for submissions for their 2011 Digital Design Competition. They’re challenging designers to re-conceptualize standard objects such as furniture, lighting, and partitions using innovative materials and fabrication techniques. FLATCUT_ is offering designers access to their 100,000 square foot fabrication facility and their on-site engineers to translate winning designs into real prototypes which will be exhibited in New York and Canada in Oct 2011.
