Miami University was well represented this year at the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) 2019 Student Design Charette. Rory Demick, a fourth-year Interior Design student, was nominated and sponsored by the IIDS OH/KY chapter to represent Miami’s program at the event. The event was held during the international Neocon Trade Show in the Chicago Merchandise Mart and included the 6-hour design charette experience in addition to the hosting of manufacturing product and showroom tours and events with design professionals from around the world. The competition celebrates the talent and fresh design ideas of interior design students throughout the world. It provides emerging professionals with the opportunity to showcase their work and gain exposure in the interior design industry.

Rory’s team, team 5, was comprised of students from all around the world. Kelly Irvine (IIDA Illinois); Lexi Muniz (IIDA Northland); Rory Demick (IIDA Ohio/Kentucky); Michaela Lee (IIDA Wisconsin); and Lorenzo Salazar (IIDA North California). Although Rory’s team did not win, the Ohio chapter was represented on the first and third-place teams. Assistant Professor, Katherine Setser, had more to say about Rory’s experience. "Here at Miami, we are proud of Rory and her accomplishments, and how she represented us at the Student Design Charette."
