« Back to course listings

FURNT-204

This interdisciplinary studio will explore how various types of space (both real and imagined) and the tactile material qualities of furniture can inform and work together to provide an enjoyable and meaningful human experience. In groups, students will identify, design, and build temporary and permanent installations within the CCA school campus that addresses the studio's theme - the ergonomics of space. Through this series of exercises, students will gain a greater understanding of ergonomics - the technology concerned with the design, manufacture, and arrangement of products and environments to be safe, healthy, and comfortable for human beings. The learning outcomes of this course will be especially valuable to students of the Architecture and Furniture Departments.
