As the definition of designer expands and architects today create everything from jewelry to urban masterplans, a new wave of objects ranging from furniture to small-scale architectural inventions is transforming our interior spaces.
Boosted by digital design and manufacturing possibilities, a rising global group of independent makers is making this crossover of furniture and architecture one of the hottest and most innovative fields of design.
Furnitecture presents some two hundred examples of this new design typology, by renowned architects and designers from around the globe, including Danish studio KiBiSis design for a reconfigurable bookshelf system, Japanese architect Shigeru Bans moving boxes within rooms, Dutch designers Makkink & Beys conversational Ear Chairs and French atelier 37.2s series of self-standing cubes.
