Assigned to create an art style chair and table


Cowley College History of Furniture and Architecture Interior Design students stepped up to the challenge when recently assigned to create an art style chair and table.

The project was to give students a different perspective and appreciation for the process of furniture makers. They were given specific dimensions to stay within but given full range of creativity. The chair and table had to be crafted from scratch; no original bases could be used for either project. 

Students were inspired from various areas of interest. From recycling old cardboard boxes, cement tubes, old fencing boards, and aluminum cans their pieces unfolded.

A presentation board with the sketch, inspirational name, and a justification statement about their artwork accompanied the pieces. These items were displayed at the Cowley College’s South Side Education Center up until Tuesday.

“For those who toured the gallery we hope you enjoyed it,” Cowley College interior design program coordinator Bridget Mack said. “Much positive and complementary feedback was given to the students and staff about the students work.”

 If you were unable to view the artwork, this will be an annual event with every fall furniture class.
Watch the gallery for the art style lamps this spring.
