la bande / Furniture

la bande
la bande

"bande" is the result of a study of personal space. It disengages from the conventional definition of space and tries to respond to the feeling of space for each person.

The object can be modified to allow the user to sit or recline.
To achieve this, one end of the bande splits into two sections.The longitudinal split and the flexibility of the material allow the two independent ends to be bent individually to form space. The ends are held in the desired position by fitting
them into a slot in the base of the furniture.
The user has the opportunity to modulate the object to satisfy his/ her needs of privacy and personal space.
