For nearly a quarter of a century, Industrial Design Professor Leonard Bacich (B.I.D. ’63, M.I.D. ’71) epitomized the rigor and magic of great teaching. On the first anniversary of his death a day before his 68th birthday, colleagues, former students, friends, and family gathered at the Knoll Showroom in Manhattan to posthumously honor Bacich with the Rowena Reed Kostellow Award.
"Lenny will be remembered as an educational master who taught students how to reach into their souls to see order and beauty," said Visiting Associate Professor of Industrial Design Jeffrey Kapec.
