Shop Pratt! Holiday Gifts Created by Alumni and Faculty

Pratt alumni and faculty have been busy soldering jewelry, writing books, and coming up with new ways to get your kids out of the house. Gift ideas here range from stocking stuffers to objéts d’art that you will be hard pressed to wrap.

OgoSport, (“Ogo” stands for Oh Go Outside!) has unveiled construction kit OGOBILD, ($16-$49), to national acclaim. Just last weekend the creators of OgoSport, Rick Goodwin and Kevin Williams (both M.I.D. ’95) were featured on CNBC’s How I Made My Millions. Another toy, the Anatomical Gummi Bear ($38) by Jason Freeny (I.D. ’88-‘92) has been flying off the shelves even though it is not edible. Two websites will bring you a treasure trove of gift ideas, Pratt Design Incubator and the American Design Club.

On the other end of the wish list, your loved one might enjoy Eros($19,900), a unique piece in lacquered steel designed by Pratt Architecture Professor Haresh Lalvani.  

Or help rebuild your community by doing your holiday shopping through Made In NYC, a project of the Pratt Center for Community Development. The city’s small manufacturers are critical to both a healthy diverse economy with good jobs for New York residents, and to the character and soul of our neighborhoods. You can also show your support for those affected by Hurricane Sandy victims and purchase t-shirts and totes designed by Pratt alumni at Storm Support.
