This course introduces students to the field of furniture design, specifically the chair. We will look at the fundamentals of chair design from form and dimensions, to function and construction. Through lectures, class discussions and exercises, students will develop and apply creative problem-solving skills and critical design thinking to formulate, communicate, and present a sound basis for their designs. Students will examine the aesthetics and ergonomics of good chair design and learn to build and utilize scale models to aid in their design and build processes. Students finish with a full-scale prototype of their chair. This class’ schedule has changed since the catalog’s publication and will be held on Monday nights.
