This past weekend, a team of Sheridan’s second year Industrial Design students won first place in Rethink Tires, a design challenge sponsored by Ontario Tire Stewardship. Students were asked to address the needs of the Artscape building on Shaw Street in Toronto using recycled tire materials. The goal of the challenge is to ignite creativity and innovative environmental landscape architecture and industrial design while showcasing the aesthetics, functionality and high performance of Ontario tire-derived products. Sheridan’s team placed first in the Industrial Design category, winning a $3,000 scholarship. The group of four consists of Alexandra D’Oliveira, Patrick Marchent, Michael Mofina and Neil Smith.
The Intermission is a celebration of the 2016 YSDN program’s graduating class and a reflection on the graduates’ past four years of study. The exhibition provides for a platform for these emerging designers to introduce themselves and their unique eye to the world. Catch up on the action at the YSDN grad show and visit their website to see the works.
