The Summer Course in Furniture Design deals with the three main areas of design: editing, design and manufacture. Using professionals and experts in the field, the course looks at the details of each of these areas and how they are implemented professionally on the small and large scale. The students take their own limitations and strengths, and those of the school’s workshop, which is their “factory”, to develop a small production run from scratch.

Summer Course in Furniture Design


– To understand what an editing company is and the importance of the editor to furniture companies.

– To understand the importance of designing while taking into account the manufacturing processes available.

– To understand the importance of making things oneself from start to finish, bearing in mind that this is not always the best option, although it is a possibility and definitely a great exercise.

– To learn to manufacture one’s own designs with one’s own hands using basic tools.

– To edit, design and actually manufacture a piece. In this way, at the end of the course the students will have completed a small production run, not just a mere prototype.

– To learn to communicate and photograph the work performed in the best way possible.

– To understand in the end, from professionals from the industry, how a piece is edited, designed and manufactured professionally and by putting this process into practice themselves during the course.


This course basically focuses on the practical, doing, without at any time forgetting the editing, design, manufacturing and communication process that must be followed. Each of the four weeks therefore focuses on one of these topics, emphasising it, while keeping the other topics in mind to a lesser extent.

Week 1: Editing a piece of furniture.

Week 2: Designing one specific piece of furniture.

Week 3: Manufacturing and self-production, in this case, in series, of the piece designed.

Week 4: Communication and presentation of the piece produced.
