Four blind students were selected for the first part of the program, were trained by the Furf Design Studio designers and then asked to “create furniture to sit on”. The result is amazing and demonstrates that there is no limit to human imagination and creativity.

The students came up with studies and preliminary sketches that were discussed and improved together with the specialists from the Furf Design Studio before the products entered into mass production.
