'The upholstery family’
The consumer makes its way in to the design process. A lot of furniture brands give the consumer the opportunity to make their own decisions about how their new furniture will look like, they can compose the furniture to their own preference.
They can choose what kind of sofa group they want for their homes (elements ,fabric ), small details
( feet , finishing of the seams). Also functional details (armrest, headrest ,etc .)
The consumer can play with these elements and compose their perfect piece of furniture for their homes.
This is where I want to jump in with this new project, I wanted to design a piece of furniture where you can change things not before you purchase the piece but when you own the piece.
The project consists of 1 chair frame with a family of ‘skins’ (upholsteries).
You can ‘dress up’ this chair frame by changing its skin, the chair will get’s a different look.
These skins are designed both aesthetic and functional. Each family member has his own color combination of materials.
The consumer can choose themselves which part of the family they want to adopt and can add parts by choice. The skins can be changed by the consumer themselves when they feel the need for change and would like something fresh in their homes.
