Flatpack Chair Exhibition opening 5 May 6-8PM: BFA Product Design

PART OF PARSONS FESTIVAL 2012: Parsons’ Product Design Flat-Pack Studio, led by faculty member Mark Bechtel, challenged students to design a piece of furniture that would flat-pack to fit within the dimensions of a UPS box or tube. The project includes the design and construction of a full-scale working furniture prototype, the packaging, and an assembly manual. Final projects were shipped to Blu Dot SoHo, where they were assembled and reviewed by a jury of critics.
