We are pleased at core.form-ula to profile Dr.Haresh Lalvani of Pratt Institute. Dr.Lalvani has spent the last 30+ years building an incredibly rich body of work that has pushed design to new limits. Dr.Lalvani has been working on many ideas through out his career, we are only able to feature a small percentage of this work within this profile. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will introduce some more experimental work coming out his Morph Studio and Milgo-Bufkin on core.form-ula.
