SOTTOSOPRA / Furniture for young and old

SOTTOSOPRA, the funiture that connects young and old barrier-free.

The basis of the project is a fictitious common room in a MEHRGENERATIONENHAUS that can be used by both generations either together but also for themselves. To be able to communicate on the same level a corresponding piece of furniture is necessary, which meets egonomical as well as statical requirements for children as well as for adults.

By mutual exchange a homogenous relationship can be formed, which is expressed by the guiding theme "at eye level".
