Exhibition of contemporary furniture work designed and fabricated by Ammar Kalo and students at the American University of Sharjah.

The exhibition produced under the tutelage of Assistant Professor and Designer Ammar Kalo, will showcase sketches, prototypes, and scale models developed during the design process in his IDE 335 Furniture Design Basics Class. Over the course of several months each of the 12 students carried their designs through various stages of conceptualisation, prototyping and fabrication working to develop unique pieces of furniture that explore a specific type of joint or detail.
