Pratt’s Design for a Dollar

May 31, 2009

Design For a Dollar was Pratt‘s exibit at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture  Fair. Given a dollar to spend on materials-here is some of the work produced.

Below is Sara Ebert‘s lamp design using a sweater sleeve stretched over an apple juice bottle.

Below is Catherine Merrick’s Drip Plates.  She found an old plate, dripped wax on it then sandblasted it. After washing wax off it left a really interesting image.

Thank you to Inhabitat for their post.  Fastcompany also has a slideshow of more work.

I hope the design department at my alma mater is taking notes.
