ReMade: Culinary Opens November 2

It’s time once again for the annual ReMade project from WWU Industrial Design! Join us this Friday, November 2 from 6-9 pm for the opening reception and get first dibs on these great designs.

The ReMade project challenges students to design with sustainability in mind, encouraging the reuse, recycling, or repurposing of material.This year the junior studio is presenting 12 modern design solutions for use primarily while dining or preparing food. A limited number of each product will be available for sale at Ideal from 11/2 through 11/16 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.

This is our eleventh 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 2 from 6-9 pm to meet these up-and-coming designers and purchase their products.
