Training students in the process of furniture-making through design and building of a full-scale prototype. Includes conceptual development, continued refinement of the concept, production of working drawings, building of a wood, laminate veneer, or steel prototype in scale 1:1, and training communication through the exhibition of their work.
In this summer-long program, students will enroll in two courses: Furniture Design Studio and Workshop (6 credits) and Furniture Design in Scandinavia (3 credits), for a total of nine (9) academic credits. Students have the option to enroll in one of many 3-credit courses that run prior to the Furniture Design in Scandinavia program. Highlights include Danish Greenspace, Design and Society in Denmark, Livability in the Modern City, and The Meaning of Style.
The program is designed for students majoring in industrial design, interior design, interior architecture, architecture, the arts; or students with other relevant backgrounds.
Students will also participate in a week-long study tour to Sweden and Finland, to study prime examples of Scandinavian furniture design, interior design, and architecture.
The program includes a number of field study visits in Copenhagen which introduce the student to prime workshops, factories, and examples of modern Danish furniture design and design in general.
