Wentworth Intern Assists with New Designs

Posted on: May 8th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner 2 Comments

Christina Fenton, our intern from Wentworth Institute of Technology, aided us with several projects during her 3 month co-op.  Christina excelled in graphic design and a willingness to jump into any project! She provided assistance with projects ranging from a new trade show banner to tackling the conceptual drawings for two of Geoff’s new designs.  The two new accessories for our Rolling Owl Stools are the Wing and the Back.  The Owl Wing will provide an adjustable work surface for tablets or laptops.  The Owl Back will also be adjustable to ensure that the “sit bones” are positioned to maximize the ergonomic comfort of the Owl stool. Christina’s outstanding conceptual drawings are below.

We would like to thank Wentworth Institute of Technology for offering the Co-op Program.  It was a tremendously positive experience.  Christina’s skills, enthusiasm, and initiative accelerated the progress on all of her projects.  In addition to her design work, Christina also began sourcing parts and manufacturers for the the Rolling Owl accessories.

The 3 months flew by– it was difficult to see Christina leave our nest!  We thank Christina for her contributions and wish her the best in her future pursuits. We know that she will be a success where ever she lands after graduation.  To see more of Christina’s industrial designs visit: www.christinafenton.com.

Stay tuned for more information about the Wing and Back!

Wentworth Intern Helps Develop Banner!

Posted on: February 27th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Our industrial design intern has been working on many new things!  Christina Fenton from Wentworth Institute of Technology has been using her computer skills to help develop our company banner.  We are excited to receive our final prints to display at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show in NYC this March!

Let’s take a look at how the banner evolved.   This is the first draft of our banner in our digital ‘booth’.  Our advisers thought the skeleton was a little too ghoulish, so we went back to the drawing board.

Original Sample

In the final version of our banner, we decided to focus on the building process and our team’s attention to detail.  Here is a sneak peak of our 8 by 8 foot banner that will debut in the Architectural Digest Show.  The banner will be a great backdrop for our colorful Owl Stools.
