Main Article Content
This paper probes interior lining, specifically column cladding, in light of expansive definitions of economy. A student design project foregrounds the discussion in order to reveal prevailing design attitudes on ornament and structure. Those attitudes are reconsidered
by the introduction of new fabrication technology. As these works supersede dichotomous relations between excess and austere, their formation suggests new working parameters for interior design in relation to ornament, craft and technology.
