On the 12th of June 2010 OOOMS stepped on a plane to Mexico. We were invited by CEDIM to give a 5 day workshop about interior & product design. Before we left we put lots of effort in the preparation so nothing could surprise us.
CEDIM is situated in Monterrey, a modern city surrounded by beautiful mountains, where the temperature easily rises up to 40 degrees Celsius. Our group consisted of 23 students from various departments, some participants were already graduated. One of the main goals of the workshop was to make the participants realise that limitations of a material mainly exist in their brain, not in the material itself.
The participants really worked hard. Not only we, but even the staff was surprised how the students took over the entire school to work on their projects. Students were working in the classroom and in the workshop, but also any other empty room, in the basement and in the hallway. It was amazing to see them work with such enthusiasm! Even when Mexico was playing the soccer match against France, the students kept on working while watching the game! The night before the presentation some students even didn’t go to bed and worked all night long, just to have their project finished; That’s the spirit!
At the presentation we were really proud of our students; So many great projects were made in just 1 week. According to all the lovely reactions from the students and the staff, and even the director of the school, we must have done a pretty good job. We would like to thank all the participants for their great effort and our friends of the staff for taking such good care of us!
