Back During the initial days of furniture studio, instructors presented examples of student work from previous quarters. The intent of viewing the projects was to serve as inspiration pieces to ignite ideas that would lead to concepts for our own designs.

The next logical step was to put pin to paper and begin to sketch. Diagramming that evolved into concepts, by pulling in elements of form, function and memory of texture and material qualities informed the design process of each table.

Material constraints established as part of the course criteria provided additional challenges, requiring additional inquiry of material characteristics and performance. Constraints included utilizing only 2x4 wood  for project 1 and an 8’x4’ sheet of plywood for project 2. Having to work within these parameters encouraged innovative design and use of material.

Sustainability and efficient use of material were key principles guiding my conceptual formulation and design process. 

Also, prior to beginning the furniture studio, I spent ten days traveling through Mexico. The vernacular construction techniques I witness for many buildings I saw left a strong impression on how utilitarian design could still have an aesthetic appeal. A few of my initial sketches reference visual elements found within the Mexico built environment. Mahogany wood, teak stain, finger-scaled lid grip, seamless tapered, beveled top Blanket Box
