Jenny Trieu, an industrial design student at the University of Houston, stands with her award-winning chair named “Infinite.” She is the winner of an annual design competition held by Wilsonart, a manufacturer of household decorative surfaces. The objective of the competition is to build “a show-stopping, eye-popping chair using Wilsonart laminate.” As a result of her win, Trieu will win a scholarship and be entered into a design competition in New York City.
The looping Infinite bends into itself, creating a continuous surface and a place to sit. It’s made with a plywood rib cage, which is then covered in layers of a laminate.
