ReMade Opening Reception is this Friday!

After a four year hiatus, we're so happy to once again be hosting WWU Industrial Design students' ReMade project. The opening reception is Friday, March 10 from 6-9pm.

ReMade is a project the junior class of Western Washington University’s Industrial Design students embarks on with the goal of taking materials that would have ended up in a landfill and turning them into functional and well-designed consumer products. In a mere matter of weeks, each student designs their product, sources all the materials, produces a limited edition of 20, and creates all packaging/branding for their piece. Ideal provides some guidance to the students during the process, sharing our thoughts from a retail perspective as well as hosting the sale. This is Ideal's 12th year collaborating with WWU Industrial Design to host the ReMade project. 

Don't miss the opening reception this Friday, March 10 from 6-9 pm to meet these up-and-coming designers and check out their products. The students' designs will be for sale at Ideal from March 10 through March 31, while supplies last. See the full lineup below!

**Please note - we will be closed on Friday from 4-6pm for exhibition setup.**
