Description

This intense session trains you in the full design process of a piece of furniture, normally a chair. Training students in the process of furniture-making through design and building of a full-scale ‘sitting support’. 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.

Highlights

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.
