Abstract
Shifting between living places has become a common routine for many
people all over the world. On the other hand, some people like students
and commuting workers move only temporary, where the feeling of
home and simplicity of moving to a new place might be challenged.
The starting-point for this project was to investigate if objects can
make it easier to move from place to place both emotionally and

Shifting between living places has become a common routine for many

and commuting workers move only temporary, where the feeling of
home and simplicity of moving to a new place might be challenged.
The starting-point for this project was to investigate if objects can
make it easier to move from place to place both emotionally and
physically. However, after research the brief was updated to create
a multifunctional product for small-space living, which is how most
people live in the cities.
Methods used in the creative process was brainstorming, need finding
through interviews, Computer Aided Modelling and prototyping.
Material and construction alternatives were analysed and compared
with regards to the interplay between the objects and ease of assembly.
The result was presented as a collection of three objects, a stool, a side
table and a big circular pad that function as independent furniture, but
also creates an additional function when the stool or side table are
available together with the circular pad. (Less)
