September 9 – December 1, 2023 Best Seat In the House: Scale Models of the Avenir Museum Chair Collection
One of the best ways to learn about the history of interior design is to experience and recreate it. Students in the Spring 2023 course, INTD 359: The History of Interior Architecture and Design, researched and re-created a chair from the Avenir Museum interior design collection to better understand the limitations the designer had to address. This project resulted in 1/6th scale models of select originals from the museum collection of historic chairs – come see the models paired with the original seating that inspired the students.
