Product design students from the University of Oregon are showing their products in New York during NYCxDesign at ICFF this week.

The students were tasked with creating designs for indoor living, including lighting, clothing, interior furniture and children’s products.

Masaru Kiyota’s project, the Sankafe Coffee Dripper, is a foldable coffee dripper made from food-grade silicone, allowing it to be easily stored in compact kitchens where space is a premium.

Canoodle by Eleanor Strand brings more comfort and security to sleep. Eleanor Reimagined the body pillow, designing Canoodle to hug the body back while being used and at the same time, bringing cool, calming colors into the bed. The texture of the corduroy gives comfortable, tactile feedback while laying soft on the skin.

Zining Chen is showing the Symmetry Tealight holder, a candle holder that suspends the candle in midair via a curving arc of brass. Jess Park’s light project, the Modular Lighting Kit, is a DIY lamp made from 20 flat-packed paper modules. The circuit is printed onto the paper using conductive ink and the light itself comes from sticker LED bulbs.

Angela Chan’s Continuous Basket is an interactive storage basket with a folding-fan mechanism that allows the user to increase or decrease the size of the basket’s opening. Jeff Whitaker’s Play Mat is a felt and foam piece that can be wrapped up to create a storage space, or laid flat to provide a play area for kids.

Mikey Trueherz created his O.3 capsule Collection  with the aim to support the wearer through their daily tasks. Trueherz writes:  “Contrasting between hidden and celebrated connections, the system’s versatility makes for an engaging and timely experience. By removing set definitions and positions for wear, 0.3 leaves form and function with the user.”

See all the projects on the University of Oregon’s ICFF 2019 website.

The final outcomes of the projects are currently on display at ICFF 2019 from 19-22 May in the Jacob K Javits Center. For more information on the schools participating in this year’s event visit the ICFF website.
