Such a cool project:
'Metaproject, the student challenge created by designer and Rochester Institute of Technology professor Josh Owen, is back again for another round. This year, Owen partnered up with hip New York-based company Areaware to present the students with the challenge of working primarily with wood and creating contemporary wooden toys geared toward adults.
Throughout the semester, students researched wood and examples of culturally specific historical and contemporary toys to define the meaning of Universal Toy. Then, each student developed his or her own toy, and one was chosen by Areaware to possibly be manufactured and sold by them.'
