In this course we will explore the possibilities of providing accommodation for the human body in a seated posture. The course will consist of a research and development portion, briefly covering the history of seating with an emphasis on some notable developments of the last 50 years. This will lead to an accelerated design phase consisting of 2d design and model-making, mocking up of components or entire pieces, and finally a construction phase leading to a working prototype. The studio will cover advanced woodworking techniques as well as the possibilities for outsourcing parts of the process. The goal is to go through a careful design and development process to get to a well refined working prototype.
