The Green Project held its annual fundraiser SALVATIONS at Canal Place on April 16, 2011, a furniture design competition utilizing reclaimed, repurposed & recycled materials.
SALVAGE + CREATIONS = SALVATIONS
All proceeds were to benefit New Orleans’ oldest local environmental non-profit, The Green Project.
The Green Project keeps over 1.8 million pounds of usable materials from the waste stream and over 40,000 gallons of paint out of the ground water supply and wetlands.
I had the honor of being one of the judges for this competition. Entries highlighted impressive use of common materials. The competition entries were displayed at Canal Place and the winners were auctioned off in a live auction. We have been lucky to represent two of the competition winners at Spruce.
William Roberts of NOMAD Studio and Paul Troyano.
The bone bench by William Roberts was the overall competition winner and is comprised of salvaged plywood fused together and cut to shape.
