Design Philadelphia 2008

In conjunction with Design Philadelphia 2008, 222gallery hosted an exhibition featuring a portion of the output from Build 02: Exploring Materiality with Wilsonart, curated by Josh Owen and Jason Lempieri. This exhibit presented output from their spring 2008 sophomore industrial design studio at Philadelphia University.

The course was a collaboration with Wilsonart International where students were challenged to develop full-scale seating devices which explored and celebrated Wilsonart’s laminate material. Selected products from the course will also be shown at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City in May of 2009.
