the student design booths at any design show are almost always my favorite. and this year the students from risd and pratt really outdid themselves. [image above: ‘perch’ by andrew mau of risd]

pratt’s ‘design for a dollar’ booth was incredibly inspiring. the students came up with the theme and tried to create products with materials that cost around $1. i loved the ‘metamorphosis’ egg crate lamp above, by sukmo koo and young taek oh.

oranges
orange votive candles by david steinvurzel.
