Program Description:
Furniture Design 

Scandinavian furniture design has a deep history of considering people, culture, and society. The course will explore these relationships and develop your individual design capabilities through studio assignments, lectures, field studies, and workshop activities. 

  • Study the Danish furniture tradition, as well as the contemporary New Nordic evolution, and engage with Danish design 
  • Develop your design abilities through project-based design assignments in studio where you will utilize the DIS wood workshop to produce your own furniture prototypes 
  • Go on a faculty-led study tour to Sweden and Finland and witness first-hand the Scandinavian design culture and history from the 20th and 21st centuries 

This program is right for you if you are from a professional school or department of architecture or design and wish to fully engage in the studio discourse and workshop activity, and invest time outside of studio hours developing projects. Prior experience with stationary power tools and hand tools is required.
