Design Within Reach: Tools for Living has challenged product design students at Parsons to create concepts for household objects, under $100, that are both functional and beautiful. The acclaimed design company worked with students in an advanced materials class in the BFA Product Design program, which teaches the critical importance of materials selection in an environmental age.
The students will display their product designs on Tuesday, November 17, at DWR: Tools for Living. The student’s work will be reviewed by those in attendance and judged by DWR, with winning designs displayed at the store
The participating students include: HeeSang Ahn, Andrea De La Torre, Riddhi R M Kumar, Kimberly Lee, Seung Yeon Lee, Zane Murray, Neelima Narayanan, Gabriela Ravassa, Yoonjoo Um, Soyoun Whang, Weisha Yu, Yoonseo Bae, Megan Conway, Toshi Fukaya, Kevin Helm, Jacqueline Hon, Cheng Yang Hsieh, Hyeonil Jeong, Jessica Lee, Bobae Moon, Kristoffer Olsson, Andrew Sack, Christine Sheu, Minchul Song, and Phillip Bodum Suare-Andersen.
