Paula W. President of SCAD

“Thank you for your many memorable accomplishments at SCAD. The furniture design program has blossomed under your leadership, with growing enrollment, strengthened collaborations with external partners, and increasing national and international visibility. I especially value your unwavering focus on elevating the prominence and reputation of SCAD and its students in the furniture design world. You brought SCAD students and their work to the Milan Furniture Fair, the NeoCon World Trade Fair in Chicago and elsewhere – and you encouraged students to enter any and all competitions and awards programs. Such exposure was greatly beneficial to SCAD and your students – with SCAD’s award of the 2009 Best International Furniture Design Program in the Young & Design competition a memorable highlight. SCAD’s mission, as you know, is to prepare talented students for professional careers, and you made this mission material with many of your achievements as chair”.

“This event (ONE GOOD WORLD ECOngress) was to showcase the affects of green products as well, so there were several speakers worth mentioning. My favorite was Antonio Larosa. Since recycling is near and dear to our hearts at Futures Furniture, his presentation on the reuse of old furniture designs into newer and more contemporary designs was terrific. Mr. Larosa teaches his students to reuse materials and waste to create and invent designs that will continue to give back”

“To everyone that meets Antonio Larosa, it’s immediately apparent this architect-designer loves what he does for a living. When he talks about furniture he’s created (and the effect it has on people) he beams like a proud parent. For more than 20 years Larosa’s designs have encouraged people to interact with each-other and recognize that good design can make people more playful.”

“…One of the smartest-looking interiors in Phoenix. The place is triking, all gleaming, burnished cherry wood (you’ll want to run your hands across it) and sleek, shiny mirrors… The designer [Antonio Larosa] of the restaurant knows something about casual, understated elegance.”
