I am starting to include more of the abstracted views of the chairs… some of our artists have an incredible eye for the spirit of the chair and can push the idea of the shadow as well as the chair. Karla Caroll did an excellent job of stretching the image to incorporate the entire card making a complete work on a 4×6 card. The task of drawing the card is what was handed out on paper… adding shadow, your own angle, and personal touches without compromising the essence of the original is where some of these students are headed.

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
