25th Annual Mockett Design Contest Winners Announced

Entries now open for the 2011 competition


There were four winning designs in the 25th annual Doug Mockett & Company Design Contest.

“We were overwhelmed with entries this last year,” says owner Doug Mockett. “From 14 different countries all over the globe, designers were excited to send something in for the quarter century anniversary. But perhaps a little surprisingly, all four first place awards went to submissions from the USA”.

The First Place awards went to:

Rick Poliquin of Henderson, NV, for a unique purse hook design, to hang a purse or computer bag under a desk or restaurant counter

Eric Coursey of Skandia, MI, for “Node,” a wire manager that gathers multiple wires at a central point and gently curves them around the edge of a desk

Saruul Herz of New York, NY, for “Polished Balance,” a new approach to table leg design with the legs bending inwards instead of standing straight up

Mark Zack of Hillsborough, NC, for a series of stylish machined metal wire managers that can easily be placed or moved on a desk or work surface as needed

Each will receive $1000, an engraved trophy, and a royalty based on sales.

Entries are now open for the 2011 Competition. Send your design or drawing or model Registered Return Receipt or FEDEX to: Contest Administrator, Doug Mockett & Company, Inc., P.O.
