Last week, MYP students held a wonderful exhibition to showcase their entrepreneurial skills and inventions. The 8th graders part was called “Chairs Into Light,” This design technology project pushed students toward innovation and creativity.

The students were tasked with designing three chairs inspired by a specific art movement. Having completed their three designs, students were meant to pick one and use it as a springboard for the design of their lamp.

The lamps that had been designed were clever representations of the various art movements that were an inspiration for this project. Resourceful and inventive, the design truly embodied how one seemingly unrelated design is able to inspire another.

Theo C. and Adam M. created what they called an Art Nouveau Lamp, which, as the name suggests, was inspired by the Art Nouveau movement of the late 1800s.

Ella W., Tomas T., and Dennis H. were taken with the Bauhaus art movement, which was concerned with classical modernity and the avant-garde. “Our challenge was to make a lamp that was inspired by a chair from our period and our period was the Bauhaus period. The materials we used were plywood, nuts, bolts, and screws. We painted the lamp with colours that faded from black to grey”.

The 9th and 10th graders also contributed to this showcase and produced equally inspiring works.
