Two second year students have been named Vauxhall young designers of the year after winning a national competition.
The scheme was set up to generate furniture designs for the car manufacturer and also promote its values of forward thinking and sustainability.
Harneel Heer won the award for ‘Best Table’ while Maggie Ip won the category of ‘Best Chair’.
As a reward for winning the competition they received cheques for £100 and tickets to the England vs. Brazil football friendly at Wembley Stadium.
The product design students met Vauxhall’s director of communications Denis Chick at the company’s headquarters in Luton where they were given a tour of the plant.
Matthew Watkins, a senior lecturer in product design at the University’s School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, said:
The University is very proud of Maggie and Harneel’s achievements and we believe they have bright futures ahead of them.
