Brooklyn-based Pratt  seems to be the school of choice for New York designers, and is currently producing some of the most cutting-edge industrial design in the country, when it comes to new technology and environmental sustainability. According to Design Intelligence (DI) , a monthly architecture and design journal, Pratt’s Industrial Design Department  is number two in the country – outranked only by California’s Art Center College of Design.
Whether or not you put any stock in school rankings, Pratt  is clearly doing something right. At every big design show I’ve been to in the past couple months, Pratt students have been exhibiting and garnering accolades for their inspired designs. Here is some of the best Pratt student work I have seen over the course of NYC Design Week:
Patrick Fricke’s  organic, modular Bamboo Room Divider:
Ana Linares  eco-friendly Plur Stool
Annie Lenon’s  adorably functional Teacups
Mark Grattan’s fabulous Shelf / Vase
For more information on any of this work, please email the designers directly.
