Today Switch is pleased to be hosting the 2015 DAAP Industrial Design Students from University of Cincinnati. For the past few years, Switch has been taking part in the student’s final project by way of offering our lighting knowledge and expertise. The project is for the students to create their own unique lighting fixture. Here’s a few from the past year we loved:
Be sure to stop into the showroom tonight (Friday, April 24) between 6:00 and 9:00 PM to check out the student’s work as well as meet them and discuss their works!
Every year Switch is involved in a design project for a class in the DAAP program at UC. Last week Drew and Bertie had their first meeting with the class to view the beginnings of their lighting design project. They also spoke to the students a bit about the lighting available at Switch and about lighting in general. Take a look at some of the photos taken during the student’s presentations:
Last Final Friday Switch hosted the final Student Showcase for third year DAAP Industrial Design Students!
Professor Peter Chamberlain describes the assignment:
“The third year Industrial Design Studio course at the University of Cincinnati college of DAAP recently took on the challenge of creating unique new residential lighting concepts. Steeped in background understanding about the science of light, realities of distribution and point of purchase environments, production and materials constraints, and informed about user needs and wants, the students tackled the complex project remarkably well.”
The showcase was a huge success and the students’ works were nothing short of fantastic! Switch is grateful to have had a part from start to finish in this project. Bertie and Drew provided feedback and advice for the students at different stages of their design process along with Professor Chamberlain. The students definitely did not disappoint!
Switch would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the students and their projects!
