so here's the chair that i designed (or at least some odd version of it). i entered this in the Design Within Reach Champagne Chair Contest, in which a model of an original chair must be made with only the cork, wires, & labels from two champagne bottles. the winner gets a $1000 gift certificate from the store. maybe i'll spend this next year working on my design for the next contest. it would probably be a little smarter than starting the night before the deadline!
