Rama Chorpash
Founding Director, MFA Industrial Design, Parsons School of Design

Rama Chorpash er Founding Director for MFA Industrial Design ved Parsons School of Design i New York, hvor han fungerer som professor. Inden han skabte dette fremadskuende studieprogram, var han direktør for BFA Product Design, Parsons and BS Industrial Design, University of the Arts. Hans pædagogik kultiverer den kritiske tænkning; udforskning af, hvad et produkt er, hvad det kan, og hvordan det på håndgribelig vis kan skabe positive forandringer i en usikker verden.

Sideløbende med sit akademiske arbejde balancerer Rama Chorpash sin kreative praksis, hvor han har arbejdet med klienter som Victorinox Swiss Army, IKEA og Swatch Watch. Hans design rummer et bredt spektrum af projekttyper – fra innovative kontormøbler for Herman Miller til et festligt rulleskøjte-disko i Central Park i samarbejde med avaf og Public Art Fund i Central Park. Indlejret i hvert projekt udforsker Rama Chorpash den sociale brug.

Værker af Rama Chorpash er udstillet fra kyst til kyst i USA, fra Museum of Modern Art i New York til San Franciscos Museum of Modern Art. Flere publikationer såsom The New York Times Style Magazine, The New Yorker og Co.Design | Fast Company har fremhævet hans profil. Rama Chorpash har haft æren af at være listet af Elle Décor som en af de ti mest indflydelsesrige personer inden for design.
