Target group

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in product and furniture design and who is considering future studies in the subject and wants to add to their portfolio. You might also be a student or professional working in architecture, interior design, product design, decorative arts, graphic design or fine art and looking for a fresh approach to working in 3D.

Course aim

This course is about experimentation with concepts, but also about the practical side of design, such as grasping an idea of basic batch production processes and ergonomics. This is a practical design course and the emphasis will be on design and making rather than on the history of furniture design, although there will be reference to it.
