Design in Society
Monday 2:30pm-5:30pm       
Malcom Thomas

This class will introduce the designers of the most recognizable furniture pieces in the context of the 20th Century and study design movements such as the Bauhaus, Danish Modernism, Swedish Grace and Post-modernism amongst others—students will reflect on these designers work in the context of the society it was produced in. Students will be encouraged to challenge the predominant accepted views and explore issues of new technologies, emerging market economies, competing ideologies, historic events, cultural associations and personalities.
