Interior Design student Kerry Bogus (2008) was recently awarded the Honor Awards Scholarship by the Northern California Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA-NC). Bogus won for her design of the Love Chair, which was designed with sustainability in mind. The chair was created in professor Brian Kane's furniture production course.
When asked about the design and materials of the chair, Bogus replied, "All of the materials are either recyclable or biodegradable and are easily disassembled. The main material of the chair is a single sheet of cork that rolls up and ships easily. I wanted to design a soft buoyant seating option that focused on sustainability."
Bogus was awarded a $6,000 scholarship and was honored on February 15, 2007, at the IIDA-NC Honor Awards Celebration at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco.
