Now in its sixth year, CONNECT highlights innovative design programs at universities throughout the country. Students, under the supervision of university faculty, have the opportunity to design environments that incorporate seating and lighting installations, with the intention of offering an intimate area on the show floor where attendees can sit, relax and “connect.” Exhibits will be located throughout the show floor, providing SOFA CHICAGO’s international audience an opportunity to experience the innovation and creativity of future designers.

The winning installation will be chosen by a jury of design professionals before the SOFA CHICAGO Opening Preview and will be awarded $3000 by Chubb Personal Risk Services, which is a returning sponsor of the fair for the fourteenth consecutive year.

Special thanks to Chubb Personal Risk Services and the Corning Museum of Glass for their generous support of CONNECT.
