trans-form-it is a new concept, for a new time. It aims to show how design can be re-directed towards an adaptable built environment and a sustainable material culture.
While trans-form-it is an imagining of a future of mobility, it is also a response to our current challenges of mobility and reduced living spaces. This collection encourages a dialogue which questions our current expectations of furniture as functionally and aesthetically determinate, and communicates the need to direct the design of our material culture towards a sustainable future.
All the pieces are contained within a box for protection during transport and storage. The furniture is assembled without tools and the entire box structure is used for the finished pieces. The collection includes lounge, dining, study and bedroom furniture.
The materials have been carefully considered. Hoop pine timber and plywood have been brought together with great attention to detail for a beautiful timeless finish. The modest aesthetic and natural materials were chosen to complement sub-tropical architecture and a sustainable way of life.
The collection includes: two seater sofa, armchair with coffee table, lounge chair, dining table and chairs with buffet and a studydesk with bookshelf.
The trans-form-it collection was launched at Unlimited: Asia Pacific Design Triennial 2010 in the "Moving Cities, Moving People, Moving Minds" exhibition in collaboration with Queensland College of Art Master of Design Futures Program, Inkahoots and Architectus. The trans-form-it lounge chair and coffee table were exhibited as part of the "EcoDesign Exhibition" at the Habitare Interiors Fair in Helsinki, Finland in 2011.
