Sallyann Corn and Joe Kent. Partners in business and life, Corn and Kent's collaboration is a balance of their vastly different skill sets: "she is the why, he is the how." The two met at the Art Institute of Seattle in 2002 while obtaining their first Industrial Design degrees. There they received a strong foundation in technical skills, but were left wanting a stronger connection to "the bigger picture." They continued their studies in 2006 at Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn and known as an incubator for entrepreneurs. A summer spent immersed in the study of furniture and architecture in the design-centric city of Copenhagen helped to solidify their philosophy of truth and functionalism, merged with an obsession with form and process. In 2011, fruitsuper began producing its own line of products, designing objects that are fun and made well from honest materials. Celebrants of constraints, yet committed to fine detail, fruitsuper imbues simplicity and whimsy in all of its work.
