Description

“Together and Apart” is an international patent-pending, modular multipurpose furniture system for residential, hospitality, and workplace use. The blocks serve and challenge the imagination and physical needs of their users. Two wedges interlock at saw-toothed surfaces, allowing them to fit together at any of many levels. This allows the user to create furniture in a wide range of adjustable heights and shapes.

More than two wedges can be combined, making for a nearly limitless range of options for chairs, benches, booster seats for kids, side tables, laptop desks, coffee tables, lounges, nightstands, and more.

With their non-specified use, the blocks create tension and encourage interaction. The tension created can either be within a single individual’s interaction with the blocks as he or she decides how to combine them, or it can manifest itself between individuals adding blocks to the same grouping or separating blocks to create a personal (detached) furniture/sculpture arrangement.

These blocks are on a made-to-order basis. These particular version is made of solid cork.
Custom finishes and materials are available upon request.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
