This furniture set, inspired by the shape of a vaulting box, consists of a table, drawers, and an upholstered element. It is stackable so it can be rebuilt according to the user’s wishes. The table can fulfil its traditional functions or it can serve as a base for the other pieces. When you change the set into a chest of drawers, the upholstered part forms the top; however it can be also used as an exercise mat or a seat. The original design details draw the user’s attention and ideally match the general character of the furniture. The notches on the sides of the drawer enable easy removal and allude to the exercise box, which was the source of inspiration for the object. This solution is perfect for small rooms which need multifunctional furniture suitable for various occasional uses.
