Going with the Grain : deadline 2 June 2009
“The challenge is to design an original and compelling object that can be made from a single sheet of FSC-certified plywood measuring 4-feet x 8-feet x 1-inch.” This looks like an awesome competition and perfect for Ponoko lovers. Be sure to check out all of the details here; must be flat-pack, must be one sheet, no glue, etc. Two prototypes of the winning design will be manufactured with one going to the designer and the other auctioned to benefit The Nature Conservancy’s sustainable forestry program.

Two winners will get a delicious €5000, exhibition at the Design Museum in London, and possible production by Alessi. (via Design Boom)
