Skilful observation of people’s problems and behaviours and noticing smart solutions are the essence of this project, mainly based on scientific research, which served as an inspiration to design specific products – simple, minimalist, and light pieces of furniture, employing clever and functional ideas. The change of the quality and level of the materials used was very important, as it demonstrated that DIY techniques can be successfully applied to commercial solutions. The projects perfectly underscores the importance of the observation and analysis stage of design taking into consideration the users’ habits. The legible and sophisticated form of presentation enables a clear reading of the author’s ideas.
