Exam work - Bachelor of Fine Arts in Furniture design - 2012
I tried to find out, through a survey, what kind of furniture people need the most. It was a global survey, spanning from Japan, through Europe to Mexico.
My 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 cultural self esteem, the economy and raise the status of local materials.
The type of furniture that everybody needs is storage furniture.
I have designed a freestanding, modular storage system. Its aim is to be flexible and easy to manufacture while offering new functionality.
This one is made from Swedish pine and stone. With locally woven bark baskets for hidden storage.
