Assistant Professor Erik Tuft is currently developing a line of furniture that is not only locally sourced but also tells the genealogy and history of the neighborhood the furniture's materials originated from. "It's a way to literally bring home a piece of history, and get people interested in lives before our own."
Tuft has a diverse professional background in both Product and Transportation design and has lived and worked in Germany, Ireland, and USA. So far Tuft has more than thirty designs go to market, most of which are still in production. Some of the products he has worked on include the Lincoln MKC, Ford Mustang, Bosch Bulldog Hamerdrill, Line Freestyle ski bindings, and the Logitech M305 computer mouse. Tuft currently teaches Product Design full time at CCS and continues to design as a consultant.
