Exam work - Bachelor of Fine Arts in Furniture design - 2012
I have found out, through a survey, what kind of furniture there is need for in big parts of the world with the ambition to design it.
The basic idea is that furniture should be manufactured where they are to be sold, with local materials and manufacturers. By doing that, there is a chance that the environmental impact will be smaller, designed furniture will be available for more, it will strengthen the national self esteem and the economy and raise the status of local materials.
The furniture that everybody needs is a storage furniture. I have designed a freestanding, modular storage system. It is flexible and easy to manufacture and offers something new.
This one is made from swedish pine and stone. With locally woven bark baskets for hidden storage.
