Mode / Modular Furniture


MODE is a modular workstation for home environments that optimizes the home office workplace. In its form and function, it seeks to escape from the classical look and feel of office furniture, bringing a creative and fun side for the home environment, encouraging the users to healthier posture habits.

A design solution that addresses the health consequences due to bad posture and social isolation, potentialized in the Covid-19 pandemic situation, where home office activities have increased fairly. The research base for this project were interviews with users, analysis of work environments, benchmarking, and ergonomic Brazilian standards.
