During the walk in the city on a paved causeway in search of a free seat the thought was born : why benches don't grow from under the ground, as mushrooms? There are no multifunction places nowadays, and this problem needs to be solved. Space generator can be used inside as well as in open ground; it can also be used on horizontal (floor, ceiling) as well as vertical (walls) surfaces. The present conception allows to carry over the virtual reality created on a computer as a three-dimensional arrangement into a material manifestation, to let ideas literally “come out from under the ground” to meet the constantly changing demands of the people.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The space generator represents a field of height-adjustable module cells. According to the predetermined program, the module cells go up and down transforming the flat platform into three-dimensional split-level arrangements of different functional purposes. This way the same platform can be quickly transformed for the scenario required at the moment without extra costs or time, becoming a presentation ground, an audience space, a leisure area, an art-object, or anything that can be imagined.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The cell of transformable platform is a jack plate and can have different section design: square, circular, elliptical, triangular, trapezoidal etc. The module cell can go by hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical or other drive and be made of different materials. Side edges of the cells could be covered by led-diode, to form screens.
