Chase Stone – SVA MA Design Research

Chase StoneĀ is a graduate of Oberiln College and a candidate for the M.A. in Aesthetics and Politics at CalArts in Los Angeles. His interest in design criticism was fostered at Vitra Design: Boisbuchet, where he lived and worked with designers from around the world. Chase focuses on analyzing how the human body reacts, both physically and emotionally, to contemporary design interventions. He is looking forward to working closely with peers at the SVA D-Crit program and exploring critical lenses together. Chase also enjoys listening to house music and reading William Gibson novels.
