Extra-Medium lectures series presents: Thomas Thwaites

As part of the Department of Industrial Design’s Extra-Medium lecture series which is focused on closing the gap between small scale production and large scale manufacturing Thomas Thwaites of “The Toaster Project” will be on campus to direct the creation of two new products from “scratch”. Selected participants for the workshop will be divided into two teams and given a $20 product from Walmart. The teams will be asked to rebuild and repurpose the products, giving them with a story and transforming their identity.
Results from the workshop will be revealed at the RISD Auditorium on the evening of February 22, followed by a 7pm lecture by Thomas discussing “The Toaster Project” and his latest adventure “The Lawn Mower Project”.
