Design Studio

Asher Dunn
October 5-9

If you are interested in designing furniture for production, this course is for you. It will also be of interest to amateur furniture makers who want to explore design more deeply. Using the same methodology with which he trains interns at his successful furniture company, Asher teaches participants how to efficiently develop new design ideas that will work in the real world.

Focusing on designs that can find viable markets, students work on assigned briefs to:

      • Analyze - study similar products to better understand price points, design details, trends, and construction choices, as well as perform speculative cost analyses;
      • Ideate - jump into fast-paced concept development, getting as many ideas as possible onto paper;
      • Refine concepts - develop designs through drawings that identify joinery, details, materials, manufacturing techniques, potential cost savings, etc.;
      • Critique - have your designs evaluated by your peers, learn to use their feedback, and provide constructive feedback to others;
      • Model - evaluate designs in three dimensions through models that zero in on scale, proportion, and structure; and
      • Presentation model - create presentation models for selling clients on your ideas.

Students may use any combination of hand drawing and CAD with which they are already familiar.
