Corcoran's ASID Team Creates "Green Wine Bottle Tree" to Benefit Pediatric Oncology Programs
Students from the Corcoran College of Art + Design have shown yet again that good design can be a good deed, too. For this year’s Georgetown Jingle, a design event created by the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, JDS Designs, Inc., and The Washington Design Center, the College’s American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) team created a Christmas tree made of wine bottles. Molly Kunselman and Katherine Robertson created the ASID tree, which was one of 12 on display, out of empty wine bottles and architectural salvage pieces. It sold to a guest in the hotel. Last year’s ASID tree was bought by news anchor Christiane Amanpour. Brooke Traeger, the College’s Associate Chair of Interior Design, said, "The ASID team’s reinvention of the hallowed Christmas tree is both clever and green. It reuses materials in a fresh and festive style."
