Tamara Nyysola and

Corina Penner have won the first-ever

GreenInteriors Student Design Competition. Dow BioProducts, Inc. and

Interior Design magazine sponsored the first annual competition, which drew 55 entries from 14 design schools across North America. The winning entry, called “Sweet Wheat,” is an integrated bed and shelving system made of

Woodstalk™ Gold MR straw-based particleboard. Although Dow BioProducts was a sponsor, the use of that company’s product was not a requirement (

EBN’s editorial policy does not include coverage of competitions created to promote a proprietary product). Details are online at
