MA Design: Products and Furniture

MA Design: Products and Furniture course is aimed at the designer who wishes to develop innovative products, furniture, systems or services. We support students to develop individual design philosophies and creative methodologies, while engaging with the realities of designing for new and emerging markets.

With a strong studio-based culture, this course considers the relationship between traditional craft skills, new technology and modern manufacture, and encourages collaborative working and hands-on experience. Students are given the tools to understand market, social needs and end users, developing into an advanced and aware designer, specialising in existing or emerging areas of product design.

The course, and the associated sup- port provided by the University, enable graduates to develop advanced design, technological and manufacturing skills, enabling them to start their own business, work within the manufacturing industry, design consultancies, research and development organisations, or to progress to further study by engaging in research.
