It will be introduced by Leslie Young, with a brief address by Ethan Lu, NYSID.
Cliff Young Ltd. is proud and happy to showcase the student furniture design projects. The NYSID furniture design studio provides and examines all aspects of designing bot hard and soft furnishings, from the initial concept to design, refinement, reevaluation and finally the finished design for presentation and prototyping on the laser cutter.

Additionally, our current MFA students are required to take an introduction to Sustainability lecture course during their first year sequence where they learn about the importance of material reduce, reuse and recycle as well as material upcycling.
