out and about :: furniture design course, day 1

Furniture design at Central Saint Martin’s – a four-day course run by Rock Galpin. Apparently in four days I will go from knowing absolutely nothing about furniture design to making a scale model of an item of furniture I’ve designed. I started the course convinced I’d still be trying to decide whether to design a chair or table on day 4, but after a morning of lectures we started drawing chairs and then imagining what we might do to change their design, and by the end of the day, I’d produced these…

My drawing isn’t great, but I can’t believe that I’ve (sort of) designed some chairs – on day one!
