Multifunctional Space

The “furniture” in itself can be static, but it can create a room different functional spaces depending on how you use it. The other solution is that the house/furniture around you is totally flexible. This way you change the function of the space, without moving to a different location.

Flexible furniture : The examples we’ve seen, works very well for one person! A lot of the solutions we looked at take the flexibility expression very literally. The various spaces and functions in the house are created as you move the furniture and walls. This is not necessarily the best solution for the daily life, especially if more than one person is living there permanently.  By having totally flexible surroundings, you also have certain limitations. Sometimes you can’t do two different things at the same time, like sleeping and cooking. Some flexible solutions can still be useful to save square meters (ex: guest bed, working space)

The “furniture” divide the space in several directions (2D & 3D), and it holds many functions, without moving all the time. The dwelling needs a certain height to be able to be able to benefit from a vertical element.
