The Next Generation of Furniture Designers at USC
About a decade ago, architect David Martin launched a furniture design studio at the University of Southern California. It took students from the sketchpad and computer into the shop where they actually created their products. It has been ongoing since. This year, under the leadership of John Uniack and R. Scott Mitchell, 30 students created both a table and chair. Results were shown on campus in a four-hour presentation. Edie Cohen and Art Gray, participants in the endeavor since its inception, were on hand as jury members for the final review.
