Under the direction of architect Irmgard Frank, the Institute of Spatial Design presents amm – furniture by architects | architektinnen machen möbel, from the course of Furniture Design Production at the Faculty of Architecture of Graz University of Technology. During the course of this programme students gain first hand experience in all phases of the design and production process and acquire a practical insight into the performance of materials. Manufactured with guidance from a skilled team from the Institute’s wood workshop, the students have crafted pieces for this collection that reflect the multidisciplinary approach of the school. This year, for the first time, the products produced within the Institute are placed on the market including three stools, three chairs, a bench, and a table. The exhibition seeks to question the various functions, necessities and requirements of contemporary ways of life, resulting in tactile objects designed to be felt, touched and used in a far from conventional manner.
