immersion in scandinavian furniture design
Summer 2016 was spent in Copenhagen, Sweden, and Finland intensely studying furniture design under some of Denmark's most renowned cabinet makers. The first 6 weeks were spent studying Scandinavian furniture design history, traveling to numerous museums, studios, and historical sights, and keeping a daily sketch diary. Along with all of these we were to be developing our own furniture designs drawing inspiration from this Danish way of thinking.
In the last two weeks I entered the wood shop with my full scale drawing and prototype and poured my being into building a floor and meditation seat out of solid white maple with my own hands.
