DALLAS – Groovystuff will unveil two new product additions for the “Moonshine Collection” in addition to student design creations from the Fall 2013, Auburn University, “Groovystuff by Design Challenge” at the High Point Market, October 19-24, 2013, The Suites at Market Square, Groovystuff Showroom # G-1025,. The High Point Market is the world’s premier home furnishings event. Each spring and fall, more than 70,000 industry professionals flock to Market Week to experience the next trend in residential and commercial furniture, lighting and home décor.
In response to the overwhelming popularity of the products made from reclaimed steel drum material by designer Chris Bruning, Groovystuff is pleased to introduce “The Moonshine Side Chair” and “Hourglass Side Table.” The transformation of these pieces from repurposed steel drums into functional home furniture make a true statement for reclaimed materials and the contribution they make to today’s modern and contemporary fashion statements. Fun yet functional, the “Moonshine Side Chairs” and matching “Hourglass Side Tables” are a colorful addition for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Groovystuff will also feature eighteen student product designers from Auburn University and the results of their participation in the Groovystuff education to industry sponsorship. Groovystuff's not-for-profit 2013 ICON Award Winning “University Hall of Innovation & Job Creation” and “Groovystuff by Design Challenge” represents a breakthrough approach to the nurturing of home furnishings design talent in partnership with leading U.S. colleges and universities. High Point Market professionals will be the first to view the results and provide market feedback on the design created from the Fall 2013 Auburn University, Industrial Design Class sponsorship. Each student will display a 20” x 30” product board, ¼” scale model and 42” tall pedestal for his/her model for competition in the “Popular Vote at Market.” The winning student designer will receive a cash prize and have his/her design put into the production for 2014.
