The Reveal frame is the result of our Jam with Skol Manufacturing and development with Industrial Design students visiting Chicago from Virginia Tech.
The Jam began with an into to Skol Manufacturing, a 70+ year old, family owned sheet metal specialist in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. The students created a video which allowed the audience to see the factory floor and get to know some of the people who work at Skol- including owner Ray Skol.
The ideas coming out of the Jam were from all types of retail catagories- lighting, grilling and small household goods. After the Jam, the students got together and met regularly with the DesignHouse team to develop the ideas further, meeting with Skol to refine each concept to be both easily manufacturable and beautiful.
