Two well-known arbiters of modern design, Dwell Media and Design Within Reach, recently announced the launch of their Live/Work Design Contest which challenges designers to create a workspace “classic of tomorrow” – a new home-office solution that DWR could potentially manufacture and sell. Dwell will accept online only submissions through March 31, 2012. In April, a panel of judges will select up to 10 finalists based on evaluations of both overall design and manufacturing potential. More information on the competition after the break.

“We’re looking for a product or furniture idea that is destined to be a future live/work staple,” says Dwell’s Editor-in-Chief Amanda Dameron. “This is an amazing opportunity for an under-the-radar or established designer to see a project realized.”

Design Within Reach is focused on making modern design accessible, which includes supporting emerging designers and educating consumers about their work. For us, the Live/Work Contest represents an exciting opportunity to partner with Dwell to discover new talent and simultaneously provide our customers with a workspace solution that improves productivity and helps them tackle everyday challenges,” said DWR CEO John Edelman.

Dwell will host the DWR-sponsored contest through the end of June, and the grand prize winner will be announced in Los Angeles in June at Dwell on Design, the West Coast’s largest design fair. The jury will be made up of editors and executives from Dwell, DWR and WantedDesign. In May, finalists’ entries will be published on dwell.com, and the public will be encouraged to vote for their favorite live/work solution.
