About Colin Westeinde : Colin is currently a student of the Rhode Island School of Design originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. While his background has been in furniture design and glass, his interests are much broader. He wants to solve problems through design by creating adaptable systems of concept, material, and manufacture. Whether through a design’s interaction with its environment or the way it’s created he looks for unexpected solutions.
