Furniture and Product Design

This undergraduate degree will train you in traditional and digital workshop practice for designing and making the furniture of the future. Taught in the well equipped and extensive workshops of our art, architecture and design school, The Cass, (formerly the London College of Furniture) the course will provide you with every opportunity to explore, aspire and innovate in the field of furniture. We also offer a two-year Furniture FdA, which provides successful students the option to either top up with Year 3 of the Furniture and Product Design BA or finish with a foundation degree. We'll challenge you with briefs, materials and time constraints reflective of real-world workplaces. You're encouraged to respond with visual research, design, material and technical experimentation, prototyping and production, all supported by the development of presentation and communication skills. During the course, you'll have the chance to develop your knowledge and understanding by working on real-world creative briefs set by professional design bodies. The briefs place strong emphasis on the professional presentation of project ideas, with past projects including work with Heal's, S.C.P, Emir, Hitch Mylius and many other private clients. The teaching team includes internationally renowned furniture and product designers, traditional cabinetmakers, CAD/CAM designers and design critics. You'll have regular opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with fellow students, as well as ongoing live projects and industry competitions. This will prepare you for your final project and graduation show.
