During the month of October, eight IA+D graduate students had their furniture designs displayed at High Point Market in North Carolina. The designs were part of a yearlong partnership with Groovystuff. At the beginning of the semester, Groovystuff sends graduate students materials to create a furniture design. Once the students complete their design, their models are then displayed in the Groovystuff booth at High Point Market and entered into a competition. This is the third year graduate students have participated in this program, and the department is proud to announce that Anna Osborne and Christine Titus received first and second place over all this year. The models are now on display in the William Johnston Gallery underneath the stairs, congratulations to these successful students!
Founded in 1998 by Chris Bruning, Groovystuff utilizes reclaimed materials in the design, production, and distribution of rustic, contemporary, and eco-friendly commercial and residential furniture, lighting, and home decor at upper-medium to high-end price points.
