MIAD/Workshop Collaborate for Furniture Design Studio Based Around Carthage College
Workshop is currently collaborating with the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) in the teaching of a site-specific furniture design studio based around The Tower at Carthage College.
Taught by Brent Budsberg, with funding from the Chipstone Foundation, the studio will challenge students to design for specific function, using mass customization to accommodate various interest and uses. The students must acknowledge the aesthetic language by aligning or reacting to our design philosophy. So far the conversations have been insightful, uncovering new ways to integrate technology with furniture, while pushing our understanding of conventional joinery methods.
