Telescope Extendible Sideboard by Moritz Proll

Home > Winners > #62112


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Telescope

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Extendible Sideboard

INSPIRATION:
It is fascinating if something turns out to be different than it seems at first sight. A piece of furniture which has an extraordinary appearance and can transform its shape in an easy and elegant way in order to expand its function was the goal. This idea is based on a vintage telescope where you can only look into if it is fully extended. Furthermore, it is exciting to combine different colours, materials, textures, and volumes which are partly contrasting but still in balance with each other.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main body offers three compartments that rest on a delicate looking steel structure which gives the object a light appearance. What really makes this piece unique is its hidden extension mechanism. Once you pull on one side of the body, the opposite module moves towards the outside in a symmetrical motion as well. An additional shelf is revealed which adds more storage space and an eye-catching showcase unit. This feature makes it possible to satisfy individual requirements of the user.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This sideboard is individually adjustable and adapts to the user requirements by changing its look and the number of compartments due to its special operating principle. Once you pull towards the outside on one of the two body-modules, the other one moves the opposite way and a bright yellow space appears. It is an additional open compartment which functions as an eye-catching display case. The further you pull the bodies apart, the more of the hidden fourth compartment reveals.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2017 in Linz and finished in October 2017 in Linz.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Thin steel bars are used for the lower frames which gives it the required strength and the desired look. The main body rests on two sleds on top of it and is made of black coloured MDF with solid walnut door panels. Two gear racks and a gear placed in between are mounted on the underside of the body enabling the two storage units to move towards the outside once you pull on one side of the body. The sliding hidden yellow compartment inside the body is constructed of melamine-faced chipboard.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
product dimensions: 1218mm-1412mm x 377mm x 1204mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When I started this project, the original idea was to create three floating cubes that act as compartments. Therefore, I designed a delicate looking structure where they can rest on. Also, I wanted to design an engineering feature which is not obvious at first sight and helps to interact with the user. I had in mind to create moving parts enabling the sideboard to transform its shape and overall appearance depending on the demand of the owner.

CHALLENGE:
There had been two challenging parts during the development: One of them was to create a special mechanism which makes it possible to move the two modules in different directions by only pulling on one side. It was difficult to find the right sizes and positions for these parts in order not to disturb the overall look of the sideboard. Secondly, the steel structure had to have a light appearance but also carry all the weight from the top so that the body modules slide easily and do not bend.
