Building an avant garde Line………

February 17, 2011

Today we started a collaboration or cross teaching project with furniture design students and graphic design students.  I gave a brief history of a chair in 20 minutes  and Jamie Runnels gave a brief history of type for my students.  The task is to design a chair from all the inspiration that these disciplines garner and to think about how it is made via a laser cutter.  This chair is from a new find for history lectures the Art Nouveau painter/designer Georges De Feure, dutch by birth but practiced in France at the turn of the century. Fascinating work.
