Material Depot

Material Depot is a furniture concept based on perforated panels. None of the individual components have specific functions, allowing them to be combined any way you like – which potentially grants them a longer lifespan.  The dimensioning of Material Depot is according to the OpenStructures design principles. The project is in line with what is known as a building passport in construction. The passport details the circular characteristics of a building. Making the destination of a building or product at the end of its useful life an integral part of the design process leads to more efficient recycling of materials and lower waste of resources. In addition to construction materials, Forbo’s Furniture Linoleum and Bulletin Board have been applied in this project for their sustainable nature. Both materials are made of natural ingredients and are produced using environmentally friendly methods.  Dimensions: 800 x 400 x 1920 mm Materials: color MDF, linoleum panels, powdercoated steel, glass Commissioned by: Forbo Photography: Raw Color
