In Typography we deal with questions of readability and artistic expression. The same, often opposed aspects are much more obvious in furniture design. Our ass tells us which type of chair feels comfortable and our eyes what looks exciting. In this first year course each student build one letter of the alphabet as a more or less functional piece of furniture or household item. Beside the exploration of letter shapes it was important to explore the college workshops and different production processes. All too often typography is reduced to the screen and printed paper.
