Biographical / Historical

The Metaproject competition was developed by the educator Josh Owen in partnership with an industry sponsor to encourage students to produce design that "is semantically correct, and pragmatically understandable, but also visually powerful, intellectually elegant and timeless." In the case of Metaproject 06, in collaboration with Poppin, the students were given the task of rethinking office products into innovative objects that accent and improve the workspace.
