Designers Plus Proud to support Georgian College09 Mar
The event is Canada’s premier showcase of new products and furniture, superstar designers and avant-garde concepts from North America and beyond.
During the opening gala, three students were recognized by Blanco Canada Inc., a high-quality sink and faucet manufacturer, as winners of its Universal Kitchen Design Competition. The competition consisted of 17 student projects that were evaluated by Ernie Lehmann, owner of Barrie’s Designers Plus Kitchen & Bath.
Students in Mary Dobson’s Sustainable Materials and Finishes class developed a kitchen design that incorporated Blanco’s new PRECIS ADA sink, made of silgranit material. The requirements were to accommodate ADA/CSA standards for people with disabilities.
Huu Tri Lee won first place, which included a $1,000 cheque toward tuition.
Michael Seines and Anatolii Gupalo were respectively second and third place winners, each receiving a tuition award as well.
