noiz architects: morphing furniture

up close of the base’s changing forms

japan and taiwan-based noiz architecture, design and planning were recently commissioned
to design a cultural salon for taiwan land corporation to enhance the corporate identity of the company.
the design theme of the project was ‘transformation’.

along with designing the new interior the firm developed furniture for the salon,
which followed with this notion of transforming. their morphing table and chairs are derived
from iconic pieces of modern designed furniture. the forms morph from one typology of
a chair or table into another in one continuous form.
