The goal was to provide comfortable and intuitive features using lo-tech construction processes. During a short charrette in September 2013, the design was developed by UDBS students through full scale prototyping. While custom details differentiate RE_DRESS, it is dependent on strategies that can be replicated efficiently and can be used to teach woodworking skills to others.
Construction documents facilitated coordination with Solid PGH furniture fabricator Matt Robinson for refinement and final production. The RE_DRESS wardrobe will be fabricated on a larger scale and available for purchase as a statement feature for any space.
