This May, twelve students from Art and Interior Design took part in The Chair, a class taught by Professor Critz Campbell.

Over just three weeks, students worked with vacuum pressing techniques to create common laminated back and seat elements. Then they designed and drafted unique chairs incorporating the seat and back elements. A field trip to Birmingham allowed students to purchase quality woods for their projects, including maple, walnut, oak, and purple heart.

Two months ago we asked this question: which of our designers will HOW magazine recognize next? Now we have our answer. It’s Jamie Burwell Mixon!

Each month the magazine picks ten inspirational websites from around the world. For June 2011, the magazine selected Professor Mixon’s website, noting the way the site showcases her “illustrative design style.”
