It’s time once again for the annual ReMade project! Join us Friday, November 3 from 6-9 pm for the opening reception and get first dibs on these great designs made locally by the Junior class of WWU Industrial Design.
ReMade challenges students to design with sustainability in mind, encouraging the reuse, recycling, or repurposing of material. This year the junior studio is presenting 12 design solutions that primarily, if not entirely, utilize materials founr in nature. As usual, a small production run of each product will be available for purchase at Ideal from November 3rd through November 17th, while supplies last.
In a mere matter of weeks, each student designed their piece, sourced all the materials, produced a limited edition of 20, and created all packaging/branding for their product. We provide a bit of guidance to the students throughout the process, sharing our thoughts from a design shop perspective as well as hosting the sale. Students receive a large percentage of ReMade sales as incentive to design and make superior work.
This is our tenth year collaborating with WWU Industrial Design and each year the students’ ingenuity and resourcefulness impress us in new ways. We hope to see you Friday, November 3 from 6-9 pm to meet these up-and-coming designers and purchase their well-designed and beautifully crafted products. If you can’t make it in but would like to buy something, give us a call at the shop and we’ll take care of you (360-752-5522).
