Dreamweaver Design Competition

The Dreamweaver Textile Design Competition was an opportunity for local A&D designers to compete in having their original textile design fabricated. The three finalists will have their designs woven, and the winner of the competition receives a Haworth Harbor Work lounge chair and ottoman upholstered in their own fabric.

Each designer had one month to design their very own textile. The designs were judged based on product application, ease of production, and aesthetics.

Each designer was required to create a charette board for the judging process to include the following: design inspiration, process and information.

This past week, Commercial Office Environments along with Mayer Fabrics and Haworth hosted an event to reveal the top three designs and the winner. The three finalists were Joleen Gottwald, Sarah Savage and Marisa Gegg.

The winner was Marisa Gegg and her design was inspired by Indianapolis’ rapid growth, rich history and welcoming community.

Marisa states, “My design is a playful graphic map of the city. The colored blocks represent specific locations special to me. This map has a playful juxtaposition with abstract geometric shapes and color blocking, which inspires a fun pattern.”
