FURNITURE students who have designed and created their own pieces from scratch will be displaying at the Pitt Rivers Museum from now until May.

A range of designs by Furniture Design and Make Foundation Degree students at City of Oxford College are now on show in an exhibition entitled 'Adaptation'.
The work on show has been inspired by the natural world, objects found at the museum in Parks Road and the museum itself.

Students have used a range of materials and processes to create both practical and conceptual pieces, using everything from found objects and reclaimed timber to leather and plastic. Techniques deployed have included soldering, wood turning and metalwork.

The results, created at the college's Oxpens Road campus, will be on display from March 22 until May 16 and are free to view. 

Furniture Tutor Drew Smith said: “This collaborative project allows our students the chance to work with an amazingly diverse range of inspirations at the museum. This opportunity has challenged and inspired each student to produce innovative and beautifully crafted artefacts."
