Interested in the relationship between digital technology and traditional craft, Kalo is dedicated to teaching his students to design products that not only have aesthetic value but are useful in today’s contemporary world, whilst assisting them in honing their big ideas; from the conceptual stage to visual ideas, then producing a prototype and fabrication.
Highlights of the exhibition include a lounge chair by Omar Alraee called the PM Chair, which has a laid-back, rocking motion; the DuoLoop by Tasnim Al Tinawi, a take on an ergonomic kneeling chair, which protects the spine during long periods of desk work; a rocking chair designed by a collaboration of Samar Sharif and Nariman Elnaggar, which has a layered and perforated appearance.
Participating students are: Bishoy Abd El Nour; Randa Abdelkarim; Shahd Abdul-Ghani; Tasnim Al Tinawi; Dalia Aldubaisy; Omer Alraee; Nariman Elnaggar; Nermin Hegazy; Sara Halawi; Hussein Hijazi; Jana Nassreddine; and Samar Sharif.
