Scandinavian furniture design has a deep history of considering people, culture, material, and society in design development. The course gives you the opportunity to explore this particular relationship and to grow your individual design capabilities through studio assignments, lectures, Field Studies, and workshop activity producing your own furniture prototype. This course is taught vertically, and expectations relate to you as an individual student.
