reimagining the residence hall
Winter 2017, University of Oregon Product Design partnered with Oregon Corrections Enterprises (OCE), a part of the state prison work system with advanced facilities for furniture production. We worked together to design, prototype and produce new dorm room furnishings for the renovation of Bean Residence Hall on the UO campus.
We wanted to have moments in space that would remind you of being at home rather than a dorm complex. Our initial prototypes were manufactured by OCE then brought to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, spring 2017.
