First year graduate students designed and developed products suitable for inclusion in Loll’s catalog in consideration of the following architectural context: Entryway. Students utilized Loll’s recycled plastic as a primary material to explore this condition. This course introduced industrial design students to a working relationship with a client using a combination of seminar and workshop formats. The output was framed by the tenets of the Vignelli design philosophy, the teaching tools available from RIT’s Vignelli Archives and molded by the brief set by Loll Designs under the tutelage of Professor Josh Owen.

Loll has chosen to exhibit the projects of RIT student designers Austin Fagot, Brendan Gordon, Lei Hong, Casey Kelly, and Bridget Sheehan along with professional projects from their Professor, Josh Owen. Other participants in the project were ID students Boyuan Ling, Qi Liu, Erica Nwankwo, Zimo Pan, Bijal Patwa, Abhishek Swaminathan, and Henry Tao.
