RIT ID Alum, Dan Ipp, was recently celebrated in the Core77 International Design Awards as a Student Runner Up in the Furniture and Lighting category. Ipp’s piece, Illuminated Side Table, is made entirely of glass. The table is comprised of 37 glass tubes, laminated between two pieces of sheet glass. The sheet glass is water-jet cut to the shape of the bundled tubes. One of the tubes incorporates an LED lighting component to illuminate the table. This lighting component is wired through the top of the table, then runs down the side of the piece. The translucency and refraction properties of glass diffuse the light, providing ambient light to define a personal space.
Congratulations on this wonderful achievement, Dan!
This years Core77 Design Awards are described as:

We’re pleased to present 17 categories of entry in our third year, providing designers, researchers and writers a unique opportunity to communicate the intent, rigor and passion behind their efforts. From client work to self-initiated projects, entrepreneurial to pro-bono engagements, we embrace a diverse range of enterprise: commercial, cultural, social, environmental and edifying.
Both the Professional and Student Winners of each category will receive the C77DA trophy, and all Honorees will be published in the Awards Gallery and on Core77, making this the most inclusive and celebratory design awards platform of the digital age.”
