Auburn student to intern at Groovystuff
January 30, 2014-- Furniture Today,
DALLAS - Groovystuff has named Meghan Wilson as the third undergraduate to participate in the Groovystuff by Design: Continuing Education with Industry internship program.
Wilson, a sophomore at Auburn University, will participate in a two stage mentorship at the furniture, lighting and accessories source's offices in Dallas.
Wilson was one of 16 students in the industrial design program at Auburn to participate in an education- to-industry collaboration with Groovystuff last fall. She developed residential home furnishings products utilizing the reclaimed materials found in the Groovystuff line.
Wilson's Diverso Game Table design received the largest number of votes from High Point Market attendees in October.
Clark Lundell, chair of the Industrial & Graphic Design department at Auburn, said Groovystuff founder Chris Bruning "has not only exposed our students and their designs to the market, but also encouraged and brought them into the realm of product development and sales."
"I am very thankful for this opportunity Groovystuff has provided for me," Wilson said. "I feel this internship will provide me with a crash course into the furniture industry and necessary real-world experience that will be useful after my college career."
