Juniors of Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, and Department of Industrial Design of Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), exhibited their learn-read-play themed furniture collection at the exhibition hall of Izmir Chamber of Commerce. Approximately 70 students designed benches, bookcases, and swings that motivate children to learn and play.
Collections of students, prepared under the guidance of IUE Faculty of Fine Arts and Design Lecturers Stefano Pugliese, Hande Atmaca, Çağdaş Cantürk, and Dr. Esra Bici Nasır, will be on display until April 13. Prof. Dr. Ender Yazgan Bulgun, Dean of IUE Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, and other lecturers also attended the exhibition.
Prof. Dr. Bulgun pointed that this year students designed furniture that would be used both indoors and outdoors, and she said, “Students worked on their collection at the wood workshop on campus. All of the handmade furniture were assembled by interlocking with each other. No screws or any other equipment were used”.
