Here are a few more pictures of or miniture furniture models so you can see how they interact with each othermore clearly. Not only are the individual pieces of furniture modular, they are also designed to fit together perfectly. However, this wouldn't be possible without the teamwork displayed by our design team. It wouldn't have worked this well without excellent communication of ideas.
These pictures also show our chaisse-lounge which we couldn't make a model of without a bandsaw. It is ergonomically designed to fit the curve of the body and only becomes more comfortable as it gets more used. This piece is also designed with a modular theme in mind,shown in the final picture. These relaxing chairs can easily be slotted together to form curved layouts perfect for social interaction and discussion.
The chaisse-lounge is also very flexible, as it can fill many other roles. They can slot together to form a backdrop to a stage. They can be used in conjunction with the screen to form a more complete barrier. It also has all the advantages that come with being made of cardboard. They are strong and caneasily be disposed of when they become too worn.
We have started work on the model of the chaisse lounge, and cannot wait to see the finished results

Here are some pictures of the downsized models we created!
The chair created, was designed by Adam Keilthy and is modular in a way that a few of these chairs are stack able and will store neatly in a room.
The space itself is very flexible. For example, the space can be set up anywhere, anytime. Also, the screen can be bent and flexed to suit the area you are in.
This furniture is very ecologically friendly as it is all made from a recyclable material. This material is cardboard which is extremely hard wearing and strong if placed together the correct way.Once the chairs become worn or tatty the waste Product can simply be recycled.
The design of the desk was thought up by Rob Newman and Harry Spain and the Screen by Sarah Twaddell, but the designs wouldn't have been modified into what they are now without a great deal of teamwork.
The team was proud of their weeks work on the project and we look forward to gathering all our work and condensing it onto the final presentation sheet!
