Typical houses are conceived as highly static and immovable environments, but the people who occupy them are not anymore. How can we design a domestic environment that predicts and allows for mobility?
“Off the Floor” is a new concept for the domestic environment that proposes an integrated and mobile furnishing system . By integrating furniture into the thickness of a transportable modular floor tile system, the project aims to address the needs of the contemporary population in responding to its highly mobile lifestyle and the shortage of space in urban domestic environment.
“Floorniture” means that you can carry “home” along with your life and, thus, repeat it over and over again wherever you are going and whenever you need.
