The Hoa Mai Furniture Design Competition 2020

The Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of HCMC (HAWA) and the American Hardwood Export Council recently announced the finalists and winners of the Hoa Mai Furniture Design Competition.

The 17th iteration of the competition continues to provide young Vietnamese designers with the opportunity to explore the creative possibilities provided by American hardwood species and for business and industry to discover and connect with emerging design talent.

Mr John Chan, Executive Director of The American Hardwood Export Council, said of the competition “We are delighted with the high quality of entries to the competition this year. The creative talent that continues to grow in Vietnam and the interest in the design and commercial possibilities that American hardwood species present is hugely encouraging”.

All entries this year were created from American red oak, the most abundant species in the American hardwood forest.  There were over 331 entries, 269 of which were from University students. The judging panel narrowed this down to a shortlist of 23 from which 9 eventual category winners were chosen.
