Dan Cuffaro from the Cleveland Institute of Art decided to make workstations for the school’s design studio using recycled materials from abandoned houses in the area. Working together with companies A Piece of Cleveland and Benchmark Craftsmen, he created the HIVE workstation. These mobile units are on wheels so they can be easily moved to find the best spot to work. They feature a worksurface, storage space, LED lights, and customizable panels.

The workstations were designed to have a positive impact on the community, meet the needs of generations of design students, and directly benefit the school. They also generated commercial interest and so earlier this year Cuffaro formed his own company, Abeo Design.
