INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AT WANTEDDESIGN BROOKLYN
220 36th Street
Exhibition and presentation: May 17–21
The Antigua Project
For the third consecutive year, a group of designers from Pratt Institute, led by Rebecca Welz, Adjunct Professor in the Industrial Design and Foundation Departments, traveled to Antigua, Guatemala. They collaborated with local weavers, woodworkers, leatherworkers, a shoemaker, a welder, seamstresses, and a silversmith to hand-fabricate products. The group will present the collection of work from their 2017 trip.
We have reached a point where all design must become conscious. Conscious Design is design created from a space of interconnected awareness with a mission to help the natural world and our communities flourish. The exhibition will showcase innovative design projects and products that not only push the boundaries of our creativity but also embody our shared responsibility. The emphasis of Pratt projects from the class of Professor Rebecca Welz is on biomimicry and protection of the oceans from plastic waste.
