There are 3 objects to the compact furniture set: the chair, the table, and the foot rest. The motive behind creating the furniture set was to combat the small living spaces that people such as I have. Each of the 3 components can be rearranged in a playful fashion to create different interesting forms. The model was all created using wood, but coming from an engineering perspective I realize that there are huge drawbacks in terms of scaling this model up to practical dimensions. There would need to be considerable reinforcements for the hinges if wood were to be used because of the sheer mass. An alternative option for material, if I were to scale this up, would be to use plastic.
