WantedDesign will introduce a transatlantic “Design Students Challenge”, created by François Brument, designer and professor at ENSCI les ateliers and Ecole superieure d’art et design Saint-Etienne in France.
WantedDesign nyc is a creative and convivial platform to bring together international designers, architects, interior designers, craftsmen, editors, manufacturers, curators and communication specialists.
The “Design Students Challenge” will be an engaging live workshop that allows design students, ambassadors of their schools, to express their creativity and technical ability.
Over the course of three days, design students from the U.S. and France will use one material, one conceptual tool (e.g. computer software), and one fabrication tool (a laser cutting machine) to design and construct a lighting design of their own invention.
At the end of three days, the designs will be presented and be judged by the public and a jury of design professionals. It is a fresh and engaging workshop that allows design students to express and challenge their creativity and techniques, in a 3 days time. This is also a unique opportunity to have 6 design schools collaborating on one common project and provides an invitation for future exchange.
Participating schools are Art Center College of Design, Parsons The New School for Design, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Ecole Boulle and ENSCI les ateliers, Ecole supérieure d’art et design Saint-Etienne.
This program is sponsored by Tai Ping. Special media support from Core77.
