2018 Considered Design Awards Prize Sponsor: Schoolhouse

This year, all category winners will receive a $500 gift card to shop Portland, Oregon, based Schoolhouse, a lighting and lifestyle company known for its modern interpretations of classic designs and its domestic utility wares. The company is dedicated to the preservation of American manufacturing, and most Schoolhouse goods are made in the company’s Portland factory, located inside a century-old brick building.

Winners can shop online at Schoolhouse.com or in-person at stores in Portland and Tribeca (a Pittsburgh store will open later this year), choosing from original Schoolhouse goods to artist collaborations and even re-issues of iconic designs (like the IBM Clock)—all of which Schoolhouse intends to be “the next generation of heirlooms.” Here’s a look at some Schoolhouse favorites.

Please notes that winners are responsible for any applicable taxes and fees, including import fees and duties, that may be assessed by their regional jurisdictions.
