Tak the new amazing designer (and square-dance choreographer) from the USA, entered Fabrica's grey walls many months ago, and since then I've been pestering him (like that little ferral white poodle down Fabrica's driveway) to do this welcome interview. He finally gave in, yay! Welcome again Tak!
How did you come to learn about Fabrica?
It was during class at Parsons. We were having critique and I zoned out during somebody else's turn and then I over heard a side conversation about Fabrica.
What have you been doing before now?
I was working for a product design/ architecture company in Tribeca, NYC. I worked there for 4 years designing products, furniture, interiors, exhibitions, competitions and other fun filled stuff.
What do you expect to get out of this experience?
I would like to learn how to cook shrimp better. I would also like to learn Italian so I don't get suckered into buying 12 pounds of shrimp. But really, I'm expecting a lot. Let's see what happens.
What will you miss from home?
I called my folks over the weekend and they told me about their Thanksgiving feast, 8 course meal!!! I had pasta in white sauce that night. It's not the same.
