From recent visits to exhibitions and design shows, it is clear that there is a fast growing demand for a new type of furniture design. These pieces not only have to look great, they need to be adaptable, fully functional and enhance the spaces that we live in, acknowledging all of life's challenges and demands that we face in the modern world. Whilst there are products and designs that have proved hugely popular in the market, many of them have failed when it comes to quality and style. Recently I was introduced to a brand that believes they have all aspects covered and I couldn't wait to find out more.
Movisi is an award winning company well known for developing and creating multifunctional, modular pieces of furniture. The brand's ethos is based on flexibility, mobility, and sustainability, three pillars that in recent times have become a necessity for both commercial, office and residential design. Their recent project has been to develop a modular furniture system called GROW!, a simple concept that is able to cater for all areas of the market, combining the quality of home furniture with the functionality and durability often associated with commercial furniture.
The results are very surprising, a simple U shaped design that can be snapped together to create almost any shape or structure you could possibly imagine. The simplicity and ease of building allow screens, shelving, storage and tables to be constructed in a matter of seconds. The draw to the product, however, comes with how easy it is to deconstruct, rearrange and build to transform the use of a space as your requirements change. This is the future of design that is slowly being applied to many areas of our lives.
The GROW! system is part of a crowd funding project. Already over halfway to reaching their goals, Movisi is looking for people as passionate for their designs as they are for support. If anyone would like to make a donation, large or small, head over to Indiegogo (Please note that the crowdfunding campaign has now closed) for an in-depth look at the project and further details on what you need to do to help. With so much opportunity in these designs and successful crowd funding projects under their belt, I cannot wait to see where Movisi take GROW! and how the collection with "grow" in the future.
