The Ant (Series 7) by Arne Jacobsen is a beautiful lightweight molded plywood hourglass shape expertly supported on spindly legs. It’s form and function are hand in hand with it’s lightweight structure, stackable form and elegant shape. Two of our students were able to capture that elegance and structure in their drawings. This was one chair that I had to redo three times before I got it right.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
