MULTIFUNCTIONAL FURNITURE

November 02, 2017

One of the biggest challenges when designing furniture is merging aesthetics with function. This week, we bring you five unique pieces that have have multiple uses within one streamlined design.
RAMPA
Achille Castiglioni & Giancarlo Pozzi, 1965
Rampa is a multifunctional station on wheels, inspired by the traditional florist’s display stands found on Italian town squares. On one side, the steps serve as multifunctional shelves; on the opposite side, there are two visible compartments for storage as well as a large wooden flap that, when opened, acts as a writing desk.
FOUNTAIN
Tokujin Yoshioka, 2017
Tokujin Yoshioka’s Fountain tables present a poetic and dynamic design unlike any other. Designed to emulate an image of water flowing through a spring, glistening and in constant motion, these low tables are molded by hand and chiseled using highly-tuned processing techniques. With a removable top, these pieces can be displayed as vases or as a unique cocktail table.
PP250 VALET
Hans J. Wegner, 1953
Wegner came up with the idea for the pp250 Valet Chair to solve the problem of folding clothes in the most practical manner when it’s time for bed. The back of pp250 works as a hanger for a jacket, while the seat is hinged and can be placed in an upright position so the trousers can be neatly folded. Underneath the seat a box is revealed for keys, a wallet, or any other small items.
CB-33 TRAY RACK
Craig Bassam & Scott Fellows, 2003
The CB-33 Tray Rack functions as storage for BassamFellows’ signature carved trays and is suitable for use anywhere an end table is required. From bedside to executive office, the removable trays are perfect for serving or entertaining and suitable for both residential or contract use.
GUEST BED
Hertel Klarhoefer Industrial Design, 2007
Guest features a solid, simple stacking design that transitions from a single daybed to a bed that sleeps two. The two beds stack without any fixings or hardware making it incredibly easy to reconfigure.
