after a long research on mid-century furniture vocabularies and features, which is one of its obvious features is separating the furniture unit into two different elements: the functional element and the standing element, i decided to work on the flying cabinet which consists of a 210cm * 55cm * 43.2cm BOX that was made of sheets of mdf and routed by CNC router, the box’s faces were joined together by CNC tenons and mortises -the functional element-, and el-muqarnas structure system -the standing element-.
the structure is a modular system of 40.0 cm X 40.0 cm X 40.0 cm repetitive unit, that fits human scale in many activities -sitting, eating, relaxing, studying and standing …- . the modular unit could be applied in many products that suit the previous activities -chair, coffee table, dinning table, desk.
the box is 43.2 cm above the ground and standing on el-muqarnas structure system that was solved in CNC.
in 24th of October, ain.design.studio will participate in /DubaiDesignWeek with another version of flying cabinet; α.
