Sandy Hook Light House

Bandboxes were principally used between 1800-1850. They were initially designed to store and transport men’s collar bands but evolved into other uses such as hat boxes and general carry-all’s. During the 1830s many boxes were printed with historical scenes, marking events and places of interest. This design is printed on a deep blue ground to represent the night sky and stormy sea, and the words Sandy Hook are printed on the box. Two ships are shown being tossed about on the turbulent waters, with numerous rocks shown in the foreground and the lighthouse standing tall.

Why Design Now?: E/S Orcelle cargo carrier

Why? Oceangoing ships present significant health, pollution, and efficiency challenges. The concept vessel E/S Orcelle is designed to be propelled without oil. Made of lightweight materials, it relies on energy sources obtained at sea—solar energy collected through photovoltaic panels in the sails, wind energy obtained through propulsion sails, and wave energy from fins, which can be transformed into hydrogen, electricity, or mechanical energy.
