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.
