The three typologies remain fairly intact and each can actually still perform its original purpose. Yet it is a combined object that blends them all together. Having more of these in a space would probably be quite fun and the overall look of that space would be beautifully shifted and confusing. The space illustrations just play out this scenario and it is quite inspiring. May be a table becomes so much more when it stops being an obvious table. Designs like this are challenging you to adjust and to follow your inspiration in that new situation.
This is also inspired by two other ingredients. First it is my memories of my grandfather who climbed on the large table in his tailoring workshop to have his after-lunch nap every day. And second it is the Rampa multifunctional station by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni from 1965, nowadays still produced by Karakter. The latter is itself inspired by the typical italian florist street stands.
Walk on this?
Sit at this?
Out of the confusion of such a typology mix rise new inspirations how to use surrounding space.
