The Design Classics Cup 2018
Thursday 14th June (World Cup opening day) to Sunday 15th July (World Cup Final Day).
As we enter into FIFA World Cup kickoff week the buzz around the footballing world is beginning to reach fever pitch. Over the next month nations from all across the globe will be battling it out for the chance to be crowned World Cup Champions but while we're 100% behind English national team we have to admit - we've got one eye firmly fixed on another competition!
Have you got a favourite 'design classic'?
That's the question somebody posed in the Utility office last week. We found it so difficult to choose just one that we decided to launch the Design Classics Cup - a month long competition to find the public's favourite furniture or lighting design. Each day, we'll be posting an Instagram Story featuring two designs and a poll in which you get to choose your favourite. 32 designs will go head-to-head in a bracket format (see below) with the public's favourite being decided on July 15th.
