And the drawing is for modular furniture called AN (table for dining or desk for reading and writing) and JI (furniture for sitting). Tangeam consists of 5 different shapes (a total of 7 thin pieces). These pieces can be put together to form triangle, square, rectangle, parallelogram, and irregular polygon.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The whole design is done using simple and traditional techniques, and the designer hopes that the whole furniture can be assembled in different forms and appearance. Different Numbers of monomers can form different forms and can be used in homes, public places, and even airport lobbies.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The designer hopes to make a bench, which can form different specifications by different forms, which can be applied to different places. It increases the practicality and variability of the works.

Mobile phone headphones are expected to show the variability of the jigsaw puzzle in the product.

CHALLENGE:
Construction is very difficult as it requires lots of delicate carpentry works. The pieces are made of geometrical lines. Through an irregular way, users can put two or more pieces together to form different shapes. The shapes and structures can be combined according to specific needs.
