Wasteless: A Collaboration with Poltrona Frau

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Parsons The New School for Design and Poltrona Frau, the world’s leading producer of luxury home furnishings, present an exhibition of work by Parsons product design students under the direction of faculty member and noted designer Andrea Ruggiero. Students were challenged to design and develop new objects using leather scraps collected over a period of two months at Poltrona Frau’s factory in Tolentino, Italy. The resulting objects are intended to expand the Poltrona Frau brand into everyday leather goods for the home and office, while elevating waste material into a premium product.

This event is part of Parsons Festival 2013:
