Coby Unger is a maker of things and a connoisseur of high fives. His background is in woodworking, product design and mess making. He studied Industrial Design at Philadelphia University and spent several months as a resident artist at Autodesk’s Pier 9 Workshop. Coby prides himself on being a professional amateur, and dabbles in many fields. In his design practice he likes to supplement his more serous work with playful and humorous projects. His recent endeavors include a mobile maker lab in India, efficient biomass cooking stoves, and low cost prosthetic devices, as well as playful public furniture, skate boards, bicycles and some complex wood turnings. Currently he is living in Somerville Massachusetts and working as an instructor at the MIT Hobby Shop.
