TU Delft Library


Chairs, Tables and Lamps 2, Students at work!

6 July 2017

The Faculty of Architecture has a fabulous and extensive collection of chairs. To get them into education, the Chair of History of Architecture and Urban Planning went looking for partners within design education, and found them in the Chairs of Form & Modelling Studies.

For the second time - during the academic year 2016-2017- several design courses challenged students to start “a dialog with a chair” and – inspired by that research – make a new design for a Lamp or a Table. After the successful summer exhibition in 2016, we will have “part two” this summer of 2017.

The resulting exhibition can be visited from 14 July – 19 September in Prinsenkwartier Delft. Opening: 14 July 17:00

Celebration of the cooperation between TU Delft Library, Faculty of Architecture and Prinsenkwartier: Friday September 15, 17:00 in Prinsenkwartier (also closing the exhibition with announcement of the winning student-design).
