Student Designed Furniture

June 1, 2009 —

Students enrolled in the course Furniture Investigations used their favorite books as inspiration for designing a unique piece of furniture. Product Design Professor Mike Glaser's class worked with Ponoko, an online shop for individualized goods that provides on-demand building, incorporating laser-cutting into design and product concepts. The students worked over two terms conducting research, creating prototypes, building full-scale versions, and working with Ponoko to make the pieces before assembling them at our studio on campus. The finished furniture will be on display in a show on June 2nd from 6PM-9 PM in the Bossone 3rd floor Atrium.

Participating students are: An-Tin Chu, Sandra Cruz, Carniesha Fenwick, Kara Lindstrom, Tara McGeehan, David Neill, Abhishek Patel, Julia Quigley, Rubab Waheed, Amanda Pincin, Erica Anderson, Suzanne Farrell, Sabryna Gancarz, Dana Mengel, Samantha Moore, Krista Moschitta, Melissa Schill, Rose Schnall, Kaitlyn Strang, Brenna Carter, Justine Ivani.
