88416 Furniture Production and Materials

6cp; 3hpw (studio)



This subject focuses on the development of the student's understanding of the design process as applied to furniture design. Students follow a methodology that includes concept generation through sketching, model making, design refinement and subsequently digital documentation and fabrication. Presentations on developing structure, model making, ergonomics and production give the student an appreciation for design appropriateness and detailing. Students learn to produce accurate digital files for production of their furniture prototypes and finally assemble their own furniture designs with hand tools under supervision in the DAB workshop.
