Modular Furniture system

Inspired by 19th century Ottoman and 20th century Scandinavian furniture. The aim was to make a simple modular system with a focus on details and materials.

Aim

Modular Furniture system inspired by 19th century Ottoman and 20th century Scandinavian furniture. Where the aim is to make a simple modular system with a focus on details and materials. Resulting in a design that is timeless and a quality beyond the average off the shelf modern Scandinavian furniture.

The objective was a modular system which can be multiplied and assembled in variety of ways for different sizes of homes or offices. Consequently the design is based around fixed dimensions and the multiplicity of these.

Design

The Scandinavian sofa modules consist of

  • low and wide seat modules with back or without back.
  • A dog-bed stuffed with semi-soft filling to match sofa
  • Low side and/or coffee table
  • A dining table for 6, fold-able for easy storage
  • Storage and shelving system (not built)

The simple timber frame plays with sectional morphing in line with Gaudi’s explorations. Where ovals become squares, half circles become rectangles in the element sections.

Tectonic

The Scandinavian sofa and tables use artificially aged oak, assembled with traditional mitre joint methods. Finished in Danish oil to give the material a tactility that you don´t get from plastics.

The soft furnishings are made from sponge cushions covered with rugged fabric.

All prototypes are handmade in house by the designers.
