MODA + IDSA Chair Hack at Atlanta Streets Alive

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Join MODA and IDSA on Sunday, September 30 for this weekend’s Atlanta Streets Alive from 1 - 5 p.m. at MODA for an afternoon of good old-fashioned chair-hacking!

Known for their classic Swedish simplicity, many IKEA products contain components that are simple in form and consistent in their application. This inherent configurability has created an underground movement of “IKEA hacking” where people modify, rebuild, reconfigure and customize IKEA pieces to fit their needs. 

In keeping with this trend, we invite teams to explore what a piece of IKEA furniture can become. Each team will be given an IKEA chair, three hours, and tasked with making anything but a chair. Battery-operated power tools are permitted (score!). Presentations and judging will occur beginning at 4:00 p.m. and prizes for best hacks will be awarded. 

Teams of up to six people can register by following the link below. Registration is $15 per person to cover the cost of materials. Please plan to arrive a little early to sign-in.
