Pratt Institute, along with North Carolina-based furniture manufacturer Cabot Wrenn, will unveil “The Pratt Institute Chair” as part of NeoCon World’s Trade Fair next week. The chair was designed by a four-person faculty-student team to celebrate Pratt’s 125 year history.
Led by Pratt faculty member and furniture designer Mark Goetz, B.I.D. ’86, the creative team included faculty member Tim Richartz, B.I.D. ’86, and industrial design students Alvaro Uribe, B.I.D. ’10, and Ashley Thorfinnson, M.I.D. ’10. The chair was designed in Pratt’s Juliana Curran Terian Design Center, and was handcrafted by Cabot Wrenn from sustainable North American white maple. The design incorporates straight cuts of lumber to minimize material waste and highstrength joinery construction to ensure maximum product life. It's faceted structure offers different perspectives from every angle.
NeoCon World’s Trade Fair takes place June 14-16 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, which presents products and resources for corporate, hospitality, healthcare, retail, government, institutional, and residential interiors from more than 700 showrooms and exhibitors.
