Design Incubator is a monthly creative event, sponsored by FFKR’s Professional Development Committee, meant to spark creativity with a unique challenge every month and provide a forum for discussion and collaboration. In celebration of International Waffle Day on March 25, 2021 our participants were challenged to take inspiration from waffles and apply a cross hatch, parametric design to a space or object of their choosing. The concepts were varied and unique. Thank you to those that participated and share their ideas.

“Pushing, pulling, and eliminating pieces and parts of a waffle can shape a piece of furniture—a desk with drawers, cabinets, and flexible space to store for a waffle lover.” — Malika
“Bending the crossing lines of the waffle into a tube or tunnel that serves as a hub in a busy city.” — Roxy
