Chubb does more

As a part of our support for the Chicago arts community, Chubb was a proud sponsor of the fifth edition of the student design competition SOFA CONNECT.

Since 1994, the critically acclaimed SOFA (Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design Fair) has focused on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design. Held every fall at Chicago’s Navy Pier, SOFA is visited by nearly 40,000 art patrons.

Every year, teams from six US universities are chosen to participate in CONNECT, SOFA’s annual student competition, highlighting top design programs in the country. Their projects are exhibited throughout the show, giving SOFA’s international audience an opportunity to experience the innovation and creativity of future designers.

Students from six top design universities in the US created unique installations presented at SOFA CONNECT from 1–4 November. This year’s winner, Purdue University, was awarded a $3,000 grant to support its arts program. Watch the video to see their stories.

CONNECT is an incredible opportunity for these students to showcase their concepts in art and design, work cohesively as a team, and demonstrate the creativity of their respective university departments. We are always excited to see the CONNECT design environments come to life from their abstract proposals to their final spaces on the show floor.
