In keeping with this trend, on Saturday, April 14 from 1pm to 4pm, MODA presents an afternoon of “chair hacking.” Teams of students, professionals, artists and/or hackers are invited to explore what a piece of IKEA furniture can become.

The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 10. For more information, rules, and registration information, click here.
