One of many ongoing events during the PARSONS FESTIVAL is an exhibit of seating protoypes called "Take A Seat." The seating protoypes are created by sophomore product design students of the School of Constructed Environments. The designs incorporate plywood components and a structural frame. The display shows the outcome of a 10-week design build up project exploring the intersection between ergonomics, sound construction techniques and finish. The exhibit is open to the public through May 23 at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center Lobby located at 2 West 13th Street.
Parsons Festival is a two week festival presented by the Parsons The New School for Design featuring thesis exhibitions and critiques, thought-provoking public programs, interactive installations, gallery openings, workshops and special events.
