1. Conrad and The Steamplant


    from Dustin Cohen Added 141K 2,389 151

    Conrad Milster, Pratt Institute’s chief engineer, has worked in the Brooklyn power plant nearly his entire adult life. Starting as a mechanic in 1958, he later became one of only four chief engineers in the plant’s 127-year history, taking over the official duties in 1965. He’s been there ever since. For the last six decades, Milster (now 79 years old) has lovingly maintained the nineteenth century steam engines that provide heat and hot water to Pratt’s campus. “We have our hands full,” says Milster. “If the plant stops in the winter, Pratt stops.” In addition, Conrad is the person behind the infamous “Pratt Cats,” responsible for the 12-14 felines that wander the campus and call the steam plant home. An important figure in Pratt’s history, Milster has extended his impact on the Pratt community through a generous gift—the Phyllis and Conrad Milster Endowed Scholarship—that provides scholarships in perpetuity to students in Pratt’s Industrial Design program. The scholarship is named for Milster and his late wife, Phyllis, who passed away in 2011. --- Filmed by Dustin Cohen, Autumn Eakin, and Christine Ng. Edited by Saela Davis.

        • Reed Hansuld: Designer & Maker of Fine Furniture


          from Peter Tannenbaum Added 1,525 12 1

          Reed Hansuld is a custom furniture maker based in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn. A self-admitted “slave to the form” he meticulously handcrafts customized, heirloom furniture pieces using both modern and traditional methods. I had the great pleasure of documenting Reed as he made his interpretation of the Hans Wegner valet chair. Says Reed, “When I first saw the Hans Wegner valet chair ,which would have been many years ago, I didn’t think much of it and didn’t really take the time to try to understand more about it. I wasn’t overly wowed or impressed, in fact I thought it had some funny elements to it. But... once I had to start designing this chair and realizing certain things about the requirements of the chair, I started realizing how smart the Hans Wegner design was.” You can see his work here: www.reedfurnituredesign.com Music: Forest Chorus (instrumental) by Quiet Corral.

                      from Young & Able Added 708 2 0

                      Arian Franz is a SoCal native who moved to NYC back in 2012. Inspired to make everyday rituals/ experiences enjoyable, this graphic designer found her new calling making soap, a product she describes as easily translatable and utilitarian. Arian’s approach for Greater Goods is simple. She focuses on taking a conceptual ideal that fills a need and applying it to a special recipe. The Mechanic soap for instance, came to fruition with her friend’s occupational needs in mind. As a bike mechanic, he wanted a reliable soap that not only got rid of the grime, but also didn’t dry out his hands or irritate his psoriasis. With each recipe, Arian has successfully been able to translate various needs into her Greater Goods soap collection. She’s taken “tactical materials that are engaging to the senses” and created a useful way to connect with people through a basic ritual. Written by Crystal Joe, Contributing Writer
