Marc Pascal - Origins of genius.

It was great this week to catch up with RMIT alumnus industrial designer Marc Pascal in his studio.

Marc will soon relocate his studio and I was keen to explore his archive in particular illustrations and drawings. I was so delighted to see a real blast from the past, an exploded view illustration of a light he designed whilst at RMIT in my second year design class. This design concept was the first of what would become his signature product - lighting. Marc built a fully functioning prototype model. I recall the light was exhibited in the Open Day show and also featured on the RMIT industrial design course brochure.
