Studio 4 encouraged students to critique the existing furniture each student is granted at the beginning of the academic year (i.e. drawing table, locker and stool) through the lens of work personalities and influences on the work as opposed to the physical characteristics of a studio space. Where does the best inspiration occur? Where are we most productive? Three B.AS students and I collaborated as a group to build 1:1 scaled pieces that addressed the need for uninterrupted surfaces, an infinitely adaptable and universal assemblage, a modular structure with strength and limited amount of waste – all while being simple and elegant.
