Public Space Furniture
Research project derived from structural principles developed in the Pomegranate Lamp.
This project builds on the structural research that resulted from the Pomegranate Lamp. It is an exploration of the formal, structural and even social benefits of creating objects based on polyhedra that are easily broken down into the repetition of a single module.
This research on the structural advantages of repeatable modules was explored through a variety of object design proposals. This modular seating system is one such proposal.
The advantage of using a modular structure in this case is to allow students or co-workers to customize their seating arrangements in order to inviting interaction or to shy away from them, depending on their needs. It becomes a non-verbal form of communication that empowers the user to have their privacy or connection needs met in a space that is accommodating of both.
