Wooden lamps made by students
Exhibition Opening:
February 7, 2019
Exhibition Closing:
April 26, 2019



Taught by Jared Ramsdell AIA, of Touloukian Touloukian Inc., Multi(ply), a design class taught at Wentworth Institute of Technology, allows fourth-year architecture students to focus on everyday objects, including lamps and pavillions. The purpose of the course is to promote research in how geometries can be fashioned with simple tools and materials to increase the performance and efficiency of each constructed object.

For this exhibition, students have created light fixture shades that look at how lighting output would directly affect the physical environment through its variability, movement, and comfort. Visitors are encouraged to illuminate and experience these light fixtures while exploring the Salt Gallery. 

Please join Wentworth Institute of Technology architecture students and faculty for a review of Multi(ply) on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 6:00 pm. 

The second part of the exhibition, opening March 27 as part of Boston Design Week, will expand the works to include occupiable wooden pavilions and chairs built by the students as the class progresses. The pavilion project is made possible through the generous donation of materials by Huber Engineered Woods and the continued support provided by the WIT Center for Applied Research.

Fabricators (students):
Jake Pirulli, Robin Wyckoff, Drew Britton, Jose Perleche, Sam Gordon, Matt Wolfson, Joe Fratoni, Rachel Hanson, Jowaher Ahmadi, Casey Clement, Abigal Ahern, David Rabkin, Roy Galang, Ally Rugg, Amro Abuzid, Patrick Curran, Phuc Le.
