As the designer of a piece of furniture, you are in command. You control where and how a viewer will first engage your work, where they will put their hand, what the experience of touching the piece will be like. So often, furniture makers take the easy way out and slap a store bought knob onto their work. There is such opportunity here, for both the enjoyment of playing around with designs and the joy of making something fun and practical. What could be more elemental a feature or purpose than a knob on a door?
On Wednesday March 20th, 2013, join us at the Studio for a lecture on Wood Knobs, Pulls, and Handles. Cost of the lecture is $50. From 6 to 8pm listen as Gary Rogowski discusses designing wood pulls and how a designer plays with the ideas of comfort and function and beauty in designing one. Learn how to model them in different materials and evaluate them for use.
