Product Design Student Work is Featured in Core 77 Design Magazine


Junior Product Design student, Jenny Hsu, recently documented her experience working on a class project in Core 77 Design Magazine.

The project is called “Designing for Wastelessness.” Under the direction of product design faculty member, Andrea Ruggiero, product design students are working with a furniture design company, called Poltrona Frau, to create designs for leather items using the company’s leftover leather scraps.

The project is giving product design students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience working for a client. The class met with the company’s Executive Vice President and Senior Marketing Manager to review each student’s proposals and choose designs that represent Poltrona Frau’s brand identity.

Students will present completed prototypes at a final juried review on May 10, 2013.
