Did you know?

The first chairs known to historians were low to the ground, ornately carved, and reserved for royalty and members of the priesthood. During the Renaissance, chairs became lighter and more varied in style. As life became more social, chairs became more common in the home.


In this class

Focusing on designs such as the self assembling Sedia chair and the Crate chairs, you’ll be taken through all the necessary steps to make your own piece of furniture.

Looking at the highly inventive techniques of the designer Enzo Mari’s including his AutoProgettzione and Rietveld’s crate series. You’ll be taught wood making skills that are adaptable to a myriad of personal projects for versatile, economic and sustainable constructions for art or design.
