We've teamed up with fellow do-gooders at Bentley Prince Street and Floor Focus for Ample Sample 2007, a design contest. The idea grew from our carpet lamp introduced inside our Gensler collaboration at Greenbuild last November.
More than 700,000 carpet samples will ship this year (maybe a few less if we do our job), helping design professionals move closer to choosing the ideal product for their projects. Too often, after they've served their purpose, samples are not sent back to the manufacturer for recycle or reuse and are destined for the dumpster (and ultimately our landfills). So what do you do with them? Make something cool. Enter before May 15 here.
