People go to Design Week and the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) in New York City to network with others who love design, meet new people, catch up with old friends, and see what's new in the world of design.
I visited Lyn Godley (left) with her students in industrial design at Philadelphia University at their two booths at the ICFF during the day. That night, at the Core77 party held at Phaidon, I ran into Indrit Hajno (far right), a former student (6 years ago) at the Charter High School for Architecture and Design in Philadelphia, and Josh Owen (on left in picture on the right), well known designer and industrial design faculty member at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology). Indrit, now graduating from college, had been an intern with Josh Owen and Lyn recently stepped into Josh's position at Philadelphia University when he moved to RIT.
Four people, four schools, and six degrees of separation over 6 years.
