The goal for the flat pack furniture project was to design a piece of
furniture using two 4’ by 4’ pieces of plywood. Design objectives
included understanding material construction and applying joinery
techniques to create a custom furniture piece. Rapid prototypes
and digital fabrication were used to create multiple variations of
the design before cutting the full-scale furniture piece.
