ANNUAL DESIGN DIALOGUE EVENT BRINGS TEXTILE DESIGNER SUZANNE TICK TO LA ROCHE COLLEGE THIS FALL
Pittsburgh, September 17, 2008 — The La Roche College Interior Design Advisory Board (IDAB) annually brings a nationally known design professional to Pittsburgh as part of its Design Dialogue Series, an event in which the designer delivers a presentation to the public and also spends time with students in the Interior Design program. This fall, the IDAB hosts New York City-based Suzanne Tick of Suzanne Tick, Inc., specializing in material development for commercial and residential interiors, including textiles, hard surfacing, carpet, woven metal screens and lighting.
Ms. Tick will present “Revolution Reality – Paralleling the Design Revolution of the Sixties with Today” on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at the Carnegie Science Center, Pittsburgh. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a reception, followed by the presentation. Ms. Tick also will meet with La Roche students in a special seminar on campus earlier that day.
Her presentation looks at the parallels between the social and design revolutions of the 1960s and today’s design concepts. Ms. Tick compares the concepts of super graphics, transparency, diffusion of light, tectonic structures, modular thinking, contemplative fields, and the hand and the machine throughout both eras. Her studio work utilizes these parallels, while still embracing today’s technologies.
The evening is open to the public with limited seating available. Cost is $30 for general admission, $20 for La Roche alumni and $15 for students. To request more information or to register, please call the Interior Design Department at 412-536-1024 or send an e-mail to: email@example.com.
