Modular Furniture Is About To Evolve!
Modular furniture is a staple in the world of modern design, that is a given, but just how modular is modular furniture? Presently, modular mainly refers to a set of furniture like a sofa, chaise lounge, chair and ottoman that all fits together in a variety of ways to suit a number of room layouts. They often do this with varying degrees of success. At the most, you can usually bang out three or even four different configurations at the most. Not too bad, I guess.
What if I told you that a new modular system is just on the horizon, a system that will revolutionize the way we all think about the word modular. A system that won’t just build three or four different living rooms, but thousands. This system will not just give you the freedom to assemble a few pieces of furniture together to form a living room, it will allow you to create any space; living room, bedroom, office, kitchen, bathroom or create your own multipurpose room from the ground up. The as-of-yet-unreleased TETRAN Infinite Furniture System will do all this and more!
A new start-up company, TETRAN Infinite Living Systems, has created what I can only think of as LEGOS for adults. Except with this building system you create real stuff…not only that, real COOL stuff. Easily create any number of furniture components like; a wall shelving unit, a sofa, an office workcenter, an island for your kitchen, an amazing kids bunk bed or anything else that fertile imagination of yours can cook up.
The TETRAN Infinite Living Systems
It is simple to create a cube, the MDF sides are pre-drilled and assembled with only one size screw. The cubes then lock together with a simple nut and bolt and a hex key to form whatever shape you want. Use pre-formed cushion modules to create comfortable seating areas. Each five inch cushion has a three inch memory foam layer for added comfort.
Finishing panels can be used to face the MDF core allowing it to fit into virtually any decor. These acrylic panels will be available in any color, shade, tone or tint you can think of. Maybe you would rather have panels made from stone, metal, glass, fabric, leather or even real wood, well those are on the way as well!
The E1 MDF structure is made from 100% recycled and recyclable eco-friendly materials. But even better than that, the TETRAN Infinite Furniture System is environmentally friendly in many much more subtle ways. Let’s say your armchair is somehow damaged, with ordinary furniture, you would have to replace the whole thing but the modular system will allow you to simply replace the damaged area. Want a new look, don’t toss that old sofa, take it apart and create a brand new design. That alone is going to save loads of landfill space but TETRAN Infinite has reduced the amount of packaging they use as well by flat packing their products for shipping making the entire system extremely friendly for the environment.
A New Era of Scalability
One of the things that I see the most potential with is the scalability of the TETRAN system. Imagine getting married and rather that buying a larger bed, you just increase the size of your existing bed or doubling the size of your desk instead of buying a bigger one. Want a shelving unit that grows with you the number of books you read? Maybe you need more storage in your basement. I think you are starting to see the possibilities.
I would think that this system would be a dream for interior designers for its flexibility, creativity and the repeat business you get as you scale up to a clients ever evolving needs.
