Furniture Design Scholarship Competition

Brooks Custom's 1st Annual Furniture Design Scholarship

Innovation is the backbone of everything we do at Brooks Custom. Over the past four decades, Richard Brooks and his team continually strive to create unique custom products made from alternative materials. It is in the spirit of innovation that we are offering a scholarship challenging current design and architecture students to continue this tradition and to incorporate zinc or concrete in designing a unique piece of furniture.
