MA Design - Furniture is concerned with relationships between people, contexts and environments and the designed consequences. Furniture design activity in this context should be considered as a prospective and not prescriptive pursuit so the question 'What can contemporary furniture practice be?' is particularly relevant. The flexible nature of the programme not only allows the development of a practice within a discreet furniture related area but also and importantly, encourages the cross-fertilisation of ideas, preoccupations and practices.
You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may be admitted if you can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard; in addition, you may also need to submit a digital portfolio.
