Digital Fabrication – The Flat-Pack Furniture Project is a furniture exhibit opening Tuesday January 21 in the William Johnston Building Gallery at Florida State University

This exhibition presents furniture pieces from the Department of Interior Architecture and 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.
