kravet design of distinction: competition entry
SCAD Interior DesigN Students, Fibers students and kravet unite.
"On a cinematically misty Wednesday evening, a group of SCAD Interior Design and Fibers students gathered in a corner classroom of Pepe Hall for an awards presentation. Representatives from Kravet, the industry leader in to-the-trade fabric and home furnishings, were joined by SCAD chair of fibers Cayewah Easley, chair of interior design Ryan Hansen, school of building arts dean Geoffrey Taylor and honorary dean Margaret Russell, as well as a number of SCAD fibers and interior design professors.
Thirty-four student teams, each comprised of one SCAD fibers student and one SCAD interior design student, displayed mock-ups of collections based on historic and current Savannah. It was the culmination of the Kravet Design of Distinction Competition, part of the company's Design Grad initiative facilitating students becoming working professionals. It was a full house."

It was an inspiring and invaluable experience to work with a MFA Fibers Student on our project for the Kravet Design of Distinction Challenge. We both had different ideas, opinions and inspiration that came together beautifully in our custom curated textile collection, inspired by the historical, urban landscape of Savannah, GA.
Radheya Visperas & I created three textiles that focussed on the Historical Figures of Savannah, events and products.
I designed and rendered a residential living space that also reflects the urban and industrial history of Savannah. This space incorporates the custom textile collection.
