Efecem Kutuk organised a field trip to Knoll Furniture in East Greensville, PA for the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) student group at NJIT. First stop was the Product Development department where a presentation was made by a senior material specialist and mechanical engineers from the company. Then a review of the history, present and future of Knoll was offered by the marketing manager, followed by a plant visit. Lastly, Linda Kasper, Museum Manager, led a tour of the museum.
The day-long experience was thorough, in terms of understanding how a product goes from concept to development to final refinement to mass production, and finally marketing and exhibition.
