2017: Design Evening and Exhibition

Commonwealth's first-ever Design Exhibition showcased creations from current and former students, parents, and faculty. The event took place at Le Laboratoire, a culture lab and gallery space in Cambridge, Massachusetts, founded by David Edwards P’20. Submissions were evaluated by a team of jurors that included Simeon Bruner P’95, whose firm Bruner / Cott designed MassMoCA and AJ Kassenaar P’06, ’08, Founder and Principal Designer, of SnapDesignLLC, Industrial Design. Designers were asked for evidence of the creative process that lead to design solutions. Featured pieces included a foot-pedaled sanding machine, an air-pop popcorn maker, furniture for all ages, a quantum sports kite, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and so much more. More than 100 guests enjoyed wine and hors d’oeuvres while perusing the exhibit. The energy and excitement around the talent and creativity of the Commonwealth community was palpable
