Winning design of spring furniture competition to be on display in NYC

June 18th, 2018 Comments Off on Winning design of spring furniture competition to be on display in NYC

This spring, Mississippi State University interior design students in Anna Chaney’s furniture design class competed in a design competition.

For the project, students had to research and develop a complete understanding of the design, development and manufacturing process of a piece of furniture.

Students began with the conceptual development and working drawings, which were then put into Rhino to produce 3D models of the work. They also developed project boards, which they presented with their models to jurors from Flexsteel, who selected the winning design and finalists.

Funding for the awards was provided by Mississippi State University Provost and Executive Vice President Judy Bonner.

Winners included:

First Place, Sam Graham

Second Place, AK Russell

Third Place, Kaitlynn Harness

Fourth Place, Bailey Cummins

Fifth Place, Mary Campbell Gray

A full-scale model of Graham’s winning chair design will be on display in Flexsteel’s booth at Boutique Design New York (BDNY) in the fall.

The Mississippi State University Interior Design Program and Flexsteel plan to continue this partnership.

Hannah Monroe, left, is interning at Gensler in Houston, Texas, this summer. Here, she takes in a view of the city from a project site on the 38th floor of an office building on Main Street.

Monroe, second from right, enjoys a company event at a lake with three fellow interns. So far in her internship, she has been on two project site visits and is working on the material presentation boards and renderings for a confidential project.

As a component of the curriculum, interior design students complete a three-month internship. The internship occurs in the summer following their third or fourth-year in the program.

These internship experiences immerse students into the profession of interior design, offering them opportunities to participate and contribute to projects including national and international.

This project participation and mentoring by design professionals prepares students to easily transition into permanent employment, resulting in MSU interior design graduates consistently being 100% employed.
