A good chair is so much more than a comfortable place to rest. Inspired by Centerbrook Architects, we will embark on a 5-week long chair challenge. You will design and build this essential piece of furniture, beginning with sketches as well as an introduction to iconic chair forms. At the heart of the Centerbrook Chair Project is an emphasis on craft and the magic of design. Each chair will respond to the unique needs of its creator — you!

From pencil on paper to CNC fabrication. Participants will learn the tools and techniques necessary to build a unique chair.

Call the Museum 203.777.1833 with any questions.

Instructor: Ryan Paxton & Elliot Romo Kurek
Fee: $435 (includes all materials to build a unique chair)
