The Philippines has a grand tradition in Furniture Design, but we are lacking in a rigorous training program for the creation of world-class furniture - especially for the export market. Our program, which will include a double dose of design classes, is meant to address this shortcoming. The Furniture Design program will introduce designers to the key design, technical and marketing factors through a variety of approaches delivered by industry mentors. By studying furniture design, and how to build and market furniture, this course sequence will fill a gap in an area of critical importance to the Philippine economy and culture.
This lecture series program offers students with the foundational knowledge that they need as a first step in furniture design production. The program will run for one semester with the core class focused on design conceptualization. Courses in materials and assembly, history, ergonomics, and representation will round out the curriculum. Students who want to continue their education can continue to the second semester and pursue a 1-year Furniture Design program.
