A big congratulations goes out to IARc Graduate student Felicia Dean for her recent win at the Appalachian State Chair Competition for her stool design: Beekeeper! Inspired by different methods of fabrication and fashion design, Felicia created the piece out of fiberglass, fabric, steel, foam and magnets. After preforming extensive research and using a combination of handmade and digital manufacturing methods, Felicia was able to construct the stool that won her the competition by unanimous decision from the judges! In committing almost a full year to the construction of this stool, Felicia demonstrates her dedication and passion towards furniture design, which she hope will lead into a prospective career in teaching. With the beautiful work Felicia consistently produces, she’s sure to have a promising and bright future!
