  • They are all so creative and unique. Great job everyone

  • Great job to all the teams. I voted for the wine barrel chair. Everyone did a fabulous job of using what could be considered waste materials. However, the chair is the only one that has true functionality in addition to being artistic. BRAVO to the Distribution, Textile & Transportation Services Team. I’d like 4 of them please? 😉

  • What wonderful examples of how we can and should find ways to save the only home we have. Amazing pieces of art!

  • What time are they going to light up the wheel?

  • Everything is so impressive! I want to buy a couple of those chairs.

  • i am so impressed with the creativity and talent displayed here. i just voted, but will also be checking out the finalists in person. all of them are great!
