Cass graduates in exhibition curated by Worshipful Company
Date: 26 October 2018
Ella Merriman and Moe Reddish graduated in 2018 from Furniture and Product Design BA (Hons) at The Cass, they recently exhibited their work at the Young Furniture Makers show.
The exhibition, organised by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, a City of London livery company and the furnishing industry’s charity, the exhibition was set up for students and graduates to showcase their work. There they had the opportunity to meet potential employers and members of the Company, giving them networking opportunities and the chance to receive valuable feedback. Ella exhibited her innovative 'Dog -eared shelf ' with a hook that was inspired by old books while Moe displayed his Lift Sideboards, a flexible storage system for the home office.
Talking about the experience of exhibiting, Ella said "Exhibiting at the Young Furniture Makers Exhibition was a great experience and I met many designers and established makers as well as talented students from other universities and institutions. It was a privilege to exhibit my work in such a beautiful building in Central London and such a rare occurrence to be given exhibition space for free. I was shortlisted in the Design category and it was interesting to see how varied the pieces entered in this category were. I had an extremely enjoyable evening and would recommend all fellow furniture students and graduates to apply for a place in 2019"
Both students have enjoyed a great end to their studies, with Ella heading to the Venice Biennale as a fellow before starting a career in the design industry and Moe both exhibiting at 100% Forward and collaborating with designers Joined and Jointed.
Chris Emmett, Head of Design at The Cass, said "It is great to see our courses' practice of engaging students with industry and commercial practice is paying off with successful product launches, exhibitions and press notices for last years graduates"
