Upper Sixth student Luke Osborne took home the winning title of the A Level Product Design Category at this year’s Creat-ED exhibition.
The event, which is hosted by Falmouth University, invites Cornish schools to submit entries at both GCSE and A Level from all fields within the creative arts sector.
Last year Luke gained an award of ‘highly commended’, but this year he won the top spot for his ‘Core Strengthening Office Chair’, nominated by Mr Drummond Masterton – Head of Sustainable Product Design at Falmouth University.
Chris Baker, Head of DT, said,
“Luke joined DT at the end of the 4th year realising quite late that it was a subject for which he had a strong affiliation. He achieved an A grade at GCSE in only one year, and at the Creat-ED exhibition last year his Calatrava inspired glass and birch-ply desk won the award of ‘Highly Commended’. His strength area is in spotting marketable design opportunities as well as his handling of hardwoods, which help to generate aesthetic appeal and desirability. He has exuded great confidence and commitment throughout the course.”
5th Year student, Sean Heaney, also scored ‘Highly Commended’ for his Steam Bent office chair in the product design GCSE category.
