Kevin Groenke (W.L. Hall Workshop) was interviewed on March 9, 2011 by Minnesota Public Radio about his design of the Umod desk for architecture students at the College of Design. Groenke designed the one piece desk and storage system as a flexible, versitile workspace specifically for architectural study and the desk has been patented by the University of Minnesota. Schools in Iowa, Missouri and Montana have purchased licenses to build the desks for their own students.
