Michael Stone (MFA Design student) creates joy and happiness at the Visible Futures Lab.
His assignment for Stefan Sagmeister’s class “Can Design Touch Someone’s Heart” led him to design a gift for his roommate, a passionate music collector. This is how the idea of a wooden record holder got started. Michael wanted it to be a simple object that can be put together without the use of glue or nails. To give it a personal touch, he inscribed his roommate’s initials boldly on the covers.
Michael brought his design to the VFL and 5 hours later, with a lot of hard work and the help of Tak and Anne-Marie, the record holder was completed. Did this project touch the heart of his roommate? Click on the video below to see his reaction to this crafty surprise:
Michael’s notes: Students who are interested in doing a project at the Visible Futures Lab should think each steps through carefully and share the ideas with the staff to discover all the possibilities.
