In this course, students learn how to conceptualize and build furniture and three dimensional objects. The course provides a brief historical overview of furniture and objects, including furniture as components of interior and/or exterior environments, human factors in design, the process of designing furniture and objects, from defining a problem to evaluating the results. The course will prompt students to explore sustainable design, design for disassembly, lifecycle analysis, low cost construction and utilize a variety of standard, ecological and recycled materials, including wood, metal, plastic and non-traditional materials. The studio practice will reinforce students’ understanding of traditional and emerging construction techniques, design for a full range of users with varying abilities and a variety of environments and contexts.
