This subject explores furniture design in a workshop setting. Students design and fabricate furniture with the aim of producing a full scale prototype of the design. Students are introduced to the design process in furniture, utilising analytical and intuitive thinking to solve design problems, employing both graphic means and three-dimensional models to express ideas. Further students are introduced to the skills, attitudes, and behaviours required in a shop setting for the fabrication of the project. Classroom lectures survey furniture design from the 1880s to the present, focusing on design histories theories and technical matters. Students learn how to work with a variety of materials and manufacturing techniques in workshops that address the successful completion of their project.
