Versatility and simplicity are the drivers of this furniture design. Minimal pieces are provided that can resolve in a multiplicity of combinations; they can either create space or be created by a space.
Versatility: The side track provides versatility for the units, acting as both a transforming and connecting element. The track may be utilized by cushions to provide comfort or shelves to provide functionality: both fully adjustable for greatest flexibility and personalization. The track can also connect separate units: connector pieces allow units to either stack or expand.
Simplicity: The simple form provides many benefits: it aids the versatility by allowing repeated modules to stack and join while allowing the users to define its function(s), results in a greater ease of production, and is transportable to different environments.
