What’s on the Table: The Designer’s Response

For those of you who were not able to visit the Library during the meet-and-greet with student designers last week, you still have two more weeks to view the products of their labour in the Special Collections display cases on the 4th floor. Students in a first year Interior Design course at Ryerson partnered with The Stop Community Food Centre to design a fund-raising item for their annual gala, which helps raise money for The Stop’s critical anti-hunger programs and services.

The exhibit was curated by Professor Lorella Di Cintio. Items will be on display from Feb 22nd to March 7th.

A bowl that can also be used as a cup, by student Iona Ionescu

A natural spoon, by student Kristalee Berger

Salad fork and spoon, by student Dorota Lemierzwicz
