ID is commonly viewed as something sleek and new, so it is no wonder that we were curious about this project with the IRC. We anticipated many constraints but each grew exponentially: as teachers we were challenged by endless logistics and the students were challenged by the constraints of the repurposed materials.
On December 10th, 2009 we successfully delivered fourteen kitchen tables to thirteen families in-need who are located in the Oakland area. The tables were designed, built and hand-delivered on-schedule, by four incredibly hard-working students. It was an exhaustive, emotional and celebratory day for all involved.
