About the course
It is rare in the world of furniture design when one avoids relying on familiar architypes long rooted in our formative subconscious. This year's "take off" theme focused on citing, updating, and developing patterns that have impacted furniture design for centuries. With this approach, we created new approaches to furniture, shifting from a basic object to a platform for conveying messages, its cultural roles, and culminating in designing a new functional item of furniture.
