Tools at Schools is a fusion concept between Bernhardt Design, creative consultancy Aruliden, and The School at Columbia University. As environment and atmosphere do really influence the learning activities at school, the design was purposely created to introduce design of comfortable school environment in the future.
The students immersed themselves in the entire design process, from research and ideation, to hand-sketching, 3D drawing and the creation of scale models. They learned to effectively communicate and sell their ideas both verbally and in writing.
Based on personal essays, five students were selected to visit the Bernhardt Design factories and report to their classes. Here, the students experienced the magic of design, when their ideas were turned into production drawings and came to life on the factory floor.
