The Ample Sample contest writes:

More than 700,000 carpet samples will ship this year, helping architects and interior designers move closer to choosing the perfect carpet for installation into their projects.

Ample Sample 2008 challenges you to “Rethink. Reuse. Upcycle”, and repurpose these samples, after their usefulness to a design project, to make a design product. Winning designs will be judged upon criteria of aesthetics, purpose, ease of creation, creativity, durability, number/volume of carpet samples or Tryks used.

The winning designs will be promoted at NeoCon World’s Trade Fair 2008, in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Winners will also be featured in Floor Focus magazine, and of course, will have blueprints of their design made available for free download to forward-thinking design firms around the world. The cut-off date for entries is May 16, so don’t hesitate.
