SUMMARY

Brief
To design a piece of architecturally influenced furniture to inhabit the Boulevard space, this space is neither a corridor or a classroom. It is a transitional space that is designed to act as a reflection of an external boulevard.

Objective
The aim was to have as sustainable design as possible. All of the timber for the furniture was reclaimed beech from disused silversmith benches in a nearby building, thus allowing it to be moved manually and without additional cost.

Proposal
Each individual in the studio began by designing a proposal, six of the designs were chosen for design development. The studio was divided into two groups of approximately ten people each working on their combined furniture design.
