Starting with an historical foundation of nomadic cultures and 19th century immigrant experience in the U.S. as reference, how do we, in our increasingly mobile society, design furniture we take with us that also acts to beautify our living environment? Working from an awareness of the United States as a mobile society with immigrant roots, students will research, then design and build furniture from an artist-craftsman perspective that can be disassembled. Our goal is the creation of mobile furniture and storage cabinetry as efficient, functional objects of art. With the increasing mobility of our population and The Tiny House phenomenon emerging as a viable option for creating affordable housing, beauty, efficiency, and mobility have become important design considerations to explore while creating quality furniture that enhances our living spaces.
