Inside2015 was assembled by designers, professors and students as a means to publically promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening in academia and amongst today's emerging talent. “The projects question the status quo and remind us all to think more creatively.” Said Mark Wilson of Fast Company Design. David Bright of Knoll, Inc. said “They address complex problems through a direct approach to design.” All of the submissions exemplified outstanding work and the competition organizers are grateful for the enormous amount of entrants who were bold enough to confront the world with their voice. “It reminds us how important it is to return to some of the basics of creation” said Barrie Benson, Founder of Barrie Benson Interior Design.
