DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
DOTDOTDOT.FRAME

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Evolving furniture

INSPIRATION:
The furniture industry is changing and there are two main factors that are driving the change: shrinking living spaces and mass customisation. People living in smaller homes are largely dissatisfied with the traditional, chunky style of furniture that can’t be tailored to meet their needs. The Dotdotdot.frame has been developed to counter this problem. This highly compact and customisable furniture system extends outwards only 4cm and gives its owner access to billions of configurations. Unlike any other furniture system on the market, it has been designed to adapt to the needs and preference of the modern individual.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Smaller living spaces need imaginative storage solutions that look good, perform well and go the distance. A highly customisable, space-saving dotdotdot.frame made from hardwearing ash wood gained from sustainable sources. From bookshelves for a busy family home to hallway organisers with somewhere to hang a hat, the frame comes with 96 holes and an expanding range of accessories. This gives user complete creative involvement when it comes to the construction of their product.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A dotdotdot.frame can be anchored to a wall with fixing pegs or lean against it. No tools are required to change shelves or accessory fixtures. Shelves are simply laid upon small pegs that are plugged into frame, and pegs are held fast by silicone rings that fit between those and the frame.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project development started in November 2014 in London and was completed by August 2015. The product was exhibited during the London Design Festival at Tent London in Sept 2015.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Ash beams are planned and then drilled using custom cnc machine. Joints are done with domino. Frames are clamped in custom jig.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Frame dimensions: 2000 mm x 740 mm x 40mm Frame weight: 8 kg.

TAGS:
modular furniture, evolving furniture, customisable furniture,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The furniture was designed with the objective of improving the versatility of traditional furniture. Research has shown that when people move house, old furniture becomes unsuitable in terms of fit and function. Moving into fully furnished homes also means that old furniture becomes unnecessary. The aim was to create a highly flexible system that could adapt to an individual’s modern lifestyle. Thus the shape had to be compact and simple enough to leave space for the imagination, inviting the owner to explore the piece’s creative potential. 


CHALLENGE:
The main difficulty was finding the right proportions so accessories could be fixed on both horizontally and vertically. This was vital in order to keep functionality fluid and allow the piece to be transformed according to the needs and whims of the owner.

NAME:
dotdotdot.furniture

PROFILE:
Homes are getting smaller. However bulky, traditional furniture doesn’t tend to acknowledge this in their design. Dotdotdot is addresses the problem of small living spaces by making compact furniture that’s fully customisable. The brand's name was born as result of the creative potential of their product. The use of three dots in language implies continuity as well as infinite possibility, which was a concept they wanted their customers to embrace. Each frame can be adapted to the needs of the user, from the amount of shelves to add-on accessories such as mirrors and blackboards. And to ensure that this creative involvement stands the test of time, they constructed their furniture from durable, sustainably sourced materials for longevity. For enhanced quality control, the brand have also cut out any intermediaries. They design, manufacture and distribute all their pieces themselves to ensure a consistently high quality that translates into the best possible experience for their customers, every time, whatever they buy.
