Bachelor of Environmental Design (Furniture Design)
The Bachelor of Environmental Design (Furniture Design) is a three-year full time course that prepares graduates for professional practice in the furniture and broader design industry. The focus in design is human centered or user need based. Understanding the ‘why’ behind an object enables us as designers to push the boundaries in design and make appropriate use of materials. Sustainable design practices and the value adding of materials, identity and craftsmanship are intrinsic to the values of this course. Students are encouraged to develop a professional approach to design and manufacture while nurturing their own distinctive styles. They explore traditional and contemporary methods of craftsmanship and the relationship between form and function. This course takes advantage of the interdisciplinary riches that exist within the School of Architecture and Design environment through collaboration and joint investigations. Exposure to other design disciplines such as Architecture, Interior design and Landscape Architecture are one of the many unique advantages of this course.
