Ariel Lynne and Vanessa Rey graduated together from the University of Illinois at Chicago receiving bachelor degrees in Industrial Design. They both have found collaboration to be the key to any successful project and luckily make a very good team. Ariel has an expert eye for aesthetics and gets the big picture. Vanessa is relentless researcher who has an eye for the details.
They both studied in Copenhagen two summers ago, Vanessa focusing on renewable energy and Ariel focusing on furniture design. That's where they saw firsthand that good design can actually be environmentally responsible. This among -numerous- other experiences have led them to the creation of Posti-plasto.
