Versatility is the verb that dominates the works of Morgan & Marley. The Danish designer/architect duo intended their furniture, in this case the Unfold Table and Zip Chair, to adapt and transform based on the user’s preference. Check out the pics and videos after the break:
- Unfold –
In the words of the designers: Unfold breaks with the notion of a table, which often consists of a regular surface with legs. Why not make a table on its own premises?
People change their home all the time. Why not change the furniture so they can be used in different situations and sizes? Why not use a piece of furniture in an unconventional way?
The table’s folding mechanism allows for size changes depending on type of use.
- Zip –
In the words of the designer:
The intention was to develop a contemporary seating typology and experiment with the dynamic relationship between body, object and space. The aim of the project was to create an adaptable structure, in which the body have freedom, accommodating contemporary needs for transformation, as the world we live in is developing and changing rapidly.
Unlike typical chairs with conventional characteristics, the Zip Chair is a self-supporting construction made of memory foam and textile elements connected by zippers. The chair switches from a hiding place to a dating seat, from a lounge chair to a workstation, with just the pull of the zipper.
