Louisiana-Pacific selects judges for "Dream On" furniture design contest.

Louisiana-Pacific has named the five judges for the company's "Dream On" furniture design contest. The contest -- aimed at demonstrating the quality and versatility of Louisiana-Pacific's industrial wood products -- is divided into three categories: design professionals, hobbyists and design students. Winners in each category will receive an all-expense paid trip to the 1992 International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta. L-P plans to build the winning pieces and exhibit them as part of its booth at the Fair.

In addition to the grand prize in each category, runner-up prizes including top quality tool selections from Bridge City Tool Works will be awarded. Entries must specify at least one of the following L-P industrial wood products: hardboard, particle-board, hardwood veneer, industrial lumber, redwood, whitewood lumber, MDF and oriented strand board. The deadline for submission of entries is March 31, 1992.

"We've promised furniture manufacturers that no matter how demanding their designs, L-P's industrial panels and solid wood products can help them produce quality results," said Kathleen Arndt, the company's advertising manager. "This contest gives us a chance to substantiate that pledge."

"We're excited about the team we've assembled to judge our competition. The five people bring an incredible depth of talent to the task of choosing the winning designs," Ms. Arndt said.

The five judges are:

* Agnes Bourne, a leading interior and product designer based in San Francisco. Ms. Bourne has been involved in the practice of design for 20 years. She operates the Agnes Bourne Showroom at the Showplace Design Center in San Francisco and has her own line of furniture, The Agnes Bourne Collection. She is actively involved in San Francisco Bay Area art and education programs and community projects and received a Presidential Citation from the American Society of Interior Designers in 1991 for distinguished service to the Society and the profession.

* Michael Chazin, editor in chief of Furniture Design & Manufacturing and former managing editor of Office Products Dealer.
