According to Chris Bruning, founder and visionary behind The University Hall: By Design, Connecting Education to Industry cooperative, "This collaboration with the design students from across the country and now internationally with the Industrial Design department at KMITL in Bangkok, Thailand, offers dealers carrying the Groovystuff line a whole new round of products designed from an entirely new perspective, untarnished by the pressures of trends and product saturation."
The Enclosure Collection by Abigail Buchanan is another example of sustainable design done right, Bruning said, "and gives retailers something special to offer one of the largest buying segments in the market today."
"Sustainability is an essential part of the Groovystuff message, and the collaboration with these universities has helped get tat message out to a broader demographic and a much more global audience," Bruning added. "The educational institutions today are providing students with a foundation of knowledge that considers energy conservation, quality of life and the responsible use of resources when teaching design. Our goal is 'to provide the students with a platform for creativity and encourage them to embrace the home furnishings industry.'"
