Digital Fabrication – The Flat-Pack Furniture Project

Digital Fabrication – The Flat-Pack Furniture Project is a furniture exhibit opening Tuesday January 21st 10 – 11:15AM in the William Johnston Building Gallery at Florida State University.

This exhibition presents furniture pieces from the Department of Interior Architecture + Design‘s Fall 2013 Graduate Furniture Design class which were designed and fabricated at Studio D and the Facility for Arts Research. The student challenge was to design two full-scale furniture pieces constructed from one 4′x8′ sheet of ¾” maple plywood in a 6-week time period using Rhino software.  Each furniture piece was designed to be CNC manufactured and flat-pack shipped, have the ability to be constructed with little to no tools and hardware, and minimize material waste.
