The Savannah College of Art and Design is pleased to announce that three of its Furniture & Industrial Design students will be exhibiting at the SaloneSatellite in Milan next week. "New work from SCAD students Bradley Bowers, Alejandro Figueredo and Matt Gray will be displayed in a dedicated exhibition at the internationally renowned design fair from April 17-22 in Milan, Italy."
B.F.A. industrial design alumnus Bradley Bowers, an M.A. furniture design candidate from Texas and Savannah, Georgia, will show his unique tabletop vase "Om," crafted of paper and latex. He will also show "Mona," a multi-purpose tabletop vessel, and his innovative lounge, "Shell," which creates a sense of true balance when used.

M.F.A. furniture design candidate Matt Gray of Dallas, Texas, will exhibit two pieces, "Li," a low table intended to encourage a new type of dining experience, and "Ante," a series of wall-mounted antlers that seek to create a juxtaposition between the natural world and manufactured objects, that can be used as a rack or serve as artful décor.

SCAD notes that "designs at the SaloneSatellite have been through a rigorous selection process and were chosen for inclusion by a committee of professionals from the fields of design, architecture and design media." Now in its 15th year, the SaloneSatellite focuses on designers under the age of 35—the three students will be exhibiting as design professionals under the moniker PLZ DONT TCH—with the timely 2012 theme of "Design ↔ Technology."
