The Cleveland Institute of Art announced this week three of its Industrial Design students have been recognized in international design competitions based in Milan and New York.
CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Institute of Art, named one of the world’s top design schools byBusinessWeek for the second consecutive year, announced this week three of its Industrial Design students have been recognized in international design competitions based in Milan and New York.
Out of 4,843 entrants, Quan Zhou ’09 made the Shortlist in Milan-based designboom’s Dining in 2015category for “Warm Up,” her design for ceramic hot-beverage vessels with a removable fabric covering or glove. Zhou developed her concept in a CIA ceramics course she took as an elective.
“In the summer, the ‘glove’ protects your hands from the hot cup with your hands outside and dual layers of insulation. In colder weather your hands are inserted in the ‘glove’ where the beverage warms your hands and the outer cloth protects your hands from the wind,” according to Zhou. Samples of her design are on display in the 62nd annual Student Independent Exhibition (SIE 62) on view at the Institute through March 15.
Kenneth Jasinski ’09 was one of 5,402 entrants in designboom’s Premio Vico Magistretti category for his furniture design. His “7 Chair,” a concept he developed when he was studying Foundation early in his CIA career, made the shortlist.
“The intent of my 7 chair was to reject all that was preconceived with the word ‘chair,’” said Jasinski. “I wanted the chair to feel the need for support while offering itself to the user at the same time. This was done by removing its back legs and placing further support dependence on a rigid surface, such as a wall.”
Rebecca Bible ’09 was one of 70 Notable Entries out of thousands of contestants in New York City-based Core77 Design Network’s Greener Gadgets Design Competition. Her “Sustain Cool” is an alternative to conventional air conditioning. The unit features a fan whose hollow blades are filled with water and then placed in the freezer. When the frozen blades are inserted into the fan assembly, they blow cool air. Bible developed her concept during for the sustainable design project assigned in the junior Industrial Design studio course.
“After much research and concept development, Cool emerged using less material, energy and tooling cost yet still offering variety and fun within an environment,” Bible wrote of her design.
