The objective of this course is to provide an introduction to furniture design focusing on the process and the product. The research and analysis of furniture archetypes and prototypes will form the basis for the study and application of manufacturing methods, design concepts, dimension and scale to object design. What makes this course unique is that it is taught by an artist who has experience teaching both sculptors and welders. She is a part-time associate professor at the Parsons School of Design, where she teaches metal fabrication.
