Description

As the definition of ‘designer’ expands and architects today create everything from jewelry to urban masterplans, a new wave of objects is transforming our interior spaces. They include bookshelves that can dynamically divide and reshape a room, chairs that create intimate room-like enclosures, home-office spaces-within-spaces, and self-contained kitchen cubes that can be expanded to reveal every conceivable cooking and eating function.

Furnitecture presents some 200 examples of this new design typology. From Danish studio KiBiSi’s design for a reconfigurable bookshelf system and Japanese architect Shigeru Ban’s moving boxes within rooms, to Dutch designers Makkink & Bey’s conversational Ear Chairs and the French atelier 37.2’s series of self-standing cubes, there is an interior world of innovation in these pages. And a personal space just for you.
