Based on a psychological study of attitudes caused by a visual environment, this is an interactive piece of furniture that you can customize, changing the position of the sliding doors very easily and quickly, allowing a slightly change the space at any moment.
The construction of the elements needed to achieve the feeling of three floating structures (in space and time), and also needed to have the necessary strength to resist for years. This took a lot of engineering structures prototypes; at the same time, it was designed to have a production with efficient use of materials.
