Furniture Design 1

Class Description

Furniture is embedded into the fabric of our everyday lives. Whether it’s that worn-in leather recliner in your living room, or your favorite table you always grab at the local cafe. Furniture can be practical and provide a perfect storage solution; it can be comforting; or it can be beautiful and pull an entire room together just by being there.

Students will learn a bit about the history of furniture, the why behind it, key ergonomic considerations for proportion and dimension, techniques for designing furniture (by hand + digitally), techniques for building scale models of their designs, and how to communicate designs to a manufacturer for production. Students will also get a behind-the-scenes look into how furniture is manufactured at a large scale, and what to look for when evaluating a manufacturer for a project.
