Space/Non-space is a shelf system that provides, besides shelves, seats, desks, tables, and even a sleeping place for two persons.
Space/Non-space consists of four shelves of three different heights that pivot laterally, by means of load-bearing joints, on a steel rod. The shelves can be rotated as you like. By rotating the shelves and arranging them it various configurations, Space/Non-space’s user can create two sets of seats, shelves, equipped desks, tables, or a double bed. A surface suitable for a double bed is created when the two sets of seats are joined at the sides. The two lower shelves function as side doors drawers suitable for storing a double mattress, pillows, and sheets. The furniture fits in with both day and night environment, for get-togethers with friends and for intimate and private moments.
The project focuses on the creation of a versatile piece of furniture, that can be used in many different moments of domestic life and in various situations, in order to replace the use of mainly fixed and bulky furniture in our homes.
