Last Friday I was lucky enough to attend the final critique at the CCA Furniture in Production class. It was inspiring to see the chairs the students had created and the quality of these prototypes demonstrated how hard they had worked. (That, and the fact they looked like they hadn’t slept in days. Ah, to be a student again.)
The students had only two weeks to make a full scale prototype, which for most of us would be a mission impossible. But what they put together rocked. There was the "throwaway" chair made of recycled paper, the "evil genius" chair out of laser cut steel, a chair created out of recycled juice boxes, a chair made out of a giant innertube, two chairs that used different types of felt and the list goes on for a total of 14 truly inspiring chairs. Kudos to the students. You can see their final projects here.
