Fui collection, modular furniture

NEW WAY OF THINKING ABOUT FURNITURE

“Why are objects positioned on top of furniture instead of being integrated in them?” FUI is born from a simple personal thought. Working on a concept of furniture that has not been explored, allowed me to move freely without any sort of projectual constrain- ts towards a new domestic landscape. After a first analysis I started to find different links that led to the start of a solid project, based on key concepts such as modularity, exchange, customization, new domesticity and organization. FUI is a collection of inte- ractive furniture, specifically a desk, a bookcase and a small table, whose top composed of wireless modules, each having a specific function and powered by an electrified base positioned below them with induction technology. The dinamicity of the furniture allows the consumers to create and customize the product in order to suit their needs, choo- sing from first collection modules by specific categories of objects such as vases, lights, speakers, organizer, charger\sockets and move them from furniture to furniture. FUI is meant to be a project that tries to explore a new possible evolution of current “furnitu- re” concept: a style innovation in which the simplicity of a daily used objects meets mo- dularity function and induction technology wireless. The project has led to explore new design scenarios, discovering new ways of interacting with objects and new possibilities for hybridization.  

Fui collection was showed at Salone Satellite 2017 were was selected among the 108 projects in '8th Salone Satellite Award.


 

+ Rica bookshelves - Private home Brera, Milan

RICA BOOKSHELVES 

The bookshelves is one of a furnishing family that are characterized by a handmade glass vase that go across the Carrara marble top creating a sort of illusion, all enclosed in a light white grid. 

The concept was to create a furniture like a piece of art that was bought functional for everyday living bought impactful and elegant, Rica in fact is a part of a project start with "fui collection" were I try to find the way to integrate objects in usual home furniture, in this work absolutely more conceptual and minimalist even if ever functional.
