Harrington Experimental Design Class Project: 2x2 Chair Design

March 26, 2012 General, Graphic & Comm. Design, Interior Design 0 Comments

In Harrington’s DSN 426 class, Experimental Design/Furniture Design, Harrington students are busy breaking all the rules.

This elective class in the Interior Design and Graphic Design programs teaches the basics of furniture making to students, then invites them to throw what they know about furniture out the window and design a chair from only 2’x2’ boards of lumber plus one material of choice. In addition, only one material for the joinery was allowed (such as screws, glue, dowels or nails).

The results of the assignment were as diverse as they were creative. This week we’re going to highlight one student’s work each day to showcase how one assignment can result in myriad creative solutions from our students.

To kick it off, please check out student Holly Hodgerson’s 2x2 chair below!
