At Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design students are exposed to a variety of conceptual approaches to furniture and encouraged to expand their thinking, redefining functional and aesthetic considerations through design, material and making investigations. The curriculum challenges students to question their perception of furniture design, examine the changing role of objects in relation to culture and prompt inquiry into their own design philosophy and contribution to the field. The second year is focused on developing a thesis body of work.
Graduates with Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design will be able to:
- effectively use a combination of two- and three-dimensional concept development skills to complete full-size human-scale design prototypes for furniture and related objects
- critique and communicate contextual, conceptual and technical content through visual, written and spoken means
- communicate specific designs in detail to allow for manufacture by others
- relate design concepts and physical prototypes to a defined context and make an individual contribution to the discipline of furniture design
