About

Design contest hosted by The Yilan County Cultural Affairs Bureau and Lanyang Cultural and Educational Foundation for 2017 titled Yilan Chair Design Competition invites submissions from anyone interested in design.

The Competition came about as a vehicle to convey the passion and hospitality of the people of Yilan as well as the natural beauty of the county’s mountain forests. The original idea was to use innovative design in a way that connected to nature and daily life, while also reflecting the county government’s long term vision of developing Yilan into a “children’s dreamland” and “city of innovation.” The event has also been used as a focal point for the development of cultural and creative industry producing furniture, stationary and toys.

The theme for 2017 is “Children’s Chair” and the challenge is to create educative and entertaining chairs designed specifically for children under 12 years of age.

The solicitation of works is divided into two categories: “Creative” (Group A) and “Practical” (Group B). In the “Creative” (Group A) category judges will be looking for children’s chairs that best relate the story of Yilan.
