Lynko Freestanding Modular System
Nomadic modular freestanding system
Our constant moving with my family meant never having a HOME, so I started to think of a way to carry with me a basic structure, like a shell, that could be a shelter. Something that would be a constant in each house. Inspired by Kondo's book, which challenges us with the question of what things we really need. By having everything on display, LYNKO offers users the chance to live efficiently only with the objects that bring them joy. It also offers the user the chance to design their own space
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Different sized metal frames and wooden hinges create an innumerable amount of configurations.
These self standing structures can be clothes hangers, office panels , dividing screens, children's puppet theatre.
The system comes with accessories such as mirrors, hooks, hangers, trays , shelves, leather or fabric pockets , etc.
The frames can be moved by the hinges to adapt to any space.
When needed it can be folded flat for storage or easy transport.
At any time more frames
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:

I have been researching into nomadic furniture but found that most were not suitable for being used in a most permanent or quality environment, I wanted something that as well as being transportable and transformable would be good quality and worth taking . That is why I try to use good quality materials, such as copper, wood , leather and good craftsmanship
There are many steps and materials in this product, so it was hard to keep it efficient in cost.
