During our final year at Pratt Institute's School of Architecture, we were confronted with a prevalent issue: the excessive waste of materials resulting from students' model making and design projects.
Motivated by this challenge, we harnessed the potential of these discarded materials, using them as our creative constraint. Through this process, we developed multiple prototypes that embodied an authentic and resourceful approach, giving rise to furniture pieces that gracefully embraced the available materials and showcased our exploration of simple yet compelling forms.
The collection featured a pair of chairs, a shelf, a tray set, and various smaller items like coasters and candle holders crafted from surplus materials. Our Prototypes were showcased at "Of the Cloth"s Rockefeller Center gallery as well as their Prospect Heights location.
