connected / variable system for furniture


connected is a variable system for furniture, that is based on a collective motive - the combination of the usable surface and the supporting parts that have the function of carrying the surface - and is applicable on several groups of furniture due to the modular formation of the carrying elements. The whole project is based on an extensive theoretical analysis of the basic elements of living, the different kinds of furniture, their characteristics and similarities.
the carrying system is based on the connection of the carrying elements by bracing them and simultaneously joining them with the surface.
