bg-001Urban Outfitters is moving in! Here’s a great opportunity to help them out – not by carrying boxes, but by thinking out of the box.

In the fall of 2014 the Urban Outfitters customer will move into their first 400 square foot apartment in the city. The new apartment will reflect the Urban Outfitters aesthetic, which shows an eclectic lifestyle of products, creativity and cultural understanding. With this in mind it’s up to you to design an amazing piece of furniture which will make this cosy Urban Outfitters apartment a place to call home. As the apartment is rather small, you should keep in mind to create something that is cost effective and related to emerging design trends for the Urban Outfitters customer. There’s room for quilts, pillow shams, storage installations and lounge chairs that you can design. The three best designs will be produced and sold in the selected Urban Outfitters stores in the US and online on Every item will include a personal tag referring to the designer’s name. Apart from that you’ll receive $1000 Cash and a $500 Urban Outfitters gift card.

So, if you’re a student or graduate with a great passion for design and ready for a challenge don’t forget to sign up before the 26th of September. A rare opportunity to move house where for once you do not have to drag those boxes, but instead think out of the box.
