Metaproject 02

In the fall of 2011, a partnership was forged between the world-renowned Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG) and Rochester Institute of Technology.

Moving the nature of the Metaproject to a new level, industrial design students worked with RIT's glass program students to explore design concepts that capitalized on glass as the primary material. RIT Glass faculty members Michael Rogers and Robin Cass developed the content together with Owen and CMoG.The “Design is One” philosophy exposed by the Vignelli Center for Design Studies was overlaid into the conversation, linking the work thematically to the Vignelli Center. Results of the collaboration were exhibited at Design Week in New York City in May, 2012.
