Third Annual Industrial Design Winter Market
Welcome one and all to the Third Annual Industrial Design Winter Market, our first-ever online version of an emerging tradition within the Department of Design at Ohio State. While visiting the Winter Market, you have an opportunity to see and purchase limited-edition –and in several cases unique –products designed and produced during an Autumn 2020 studio course by 3rd-year students in the industrial design major.
Each of the seven “housewares” products in our 2020 Winter Market strike a balance between addressing the needs of potential users, the demands of small-run production, the constraints of a limited budget, and approaches to sustainability.
Proceeds from this year’s Winter Market will benefit the student-led Ohio State chapter of IDSA (Industrial Designers Society of America), which has earmarked the first $700 to support next year’s Winter Market, then designated a 50-50 split between IDSA programming and a contribution to a local charity for the remaining funds.
View our 2020 Winter Market products online (go.osu.edu/wintermarket), then purchase during a limited time window. At high noon on Monday 11/23, customers will have 24 hours to shop. In years past, products sell-out in mere minutes!
