A flexible furniture system for cohabitation spaces.
Patchwork is our master project, developed at Designskolen Kolding.
The project starts from the analysis of the context of reception centres for homeless people and, in a perspective of inclusive design, aims to locate solutions to needs that can be identified in a wider range of situations.
Our challenge is to improve in an inclusive way the quality of life of different people in different contexts of cohabitation.
Patchwork provides an efficient solution to the needs of privacy, demarcation of a own space, personalization and organization of clothes and personal belongings.
The solutions that we designed are suitable for the dormitories of reception centers for homeless people as well as for student residences, hostels and other cohabitation contexts.
