Specialty: Products by art and design students
Price Range: ($$) Mid-Range to ($$$) High-End
Art and design students often create some of the most inventive product designs around. The only problem is that it can be difficult for those students to get their products into the hands of consumers. New e-commerce site Vespoe is solving that problem.
Vespoe is a direct portal between a design student's imagination and consumers hungry for new and inventive products. And, surprisingly, many of the pieces are quite affordable, making it easy to make a student's dreams of becoming the next Philippe Starck a reality without breaking the bank.
