‘XXXX_’ transformable furniture system by yuya ushida

 

 

 

designer yuya ushida has developed ‘XXXX_’ a transformable furniture system made of four components in different lengths,
rings and joints. when put together, the assembly becomes more than just the sum of parts. in a synergetic manner, the furniture
expands and contracts as needed. sofas, stools, tables and benches can be created from the eight different elements within
the building kit–this modular system offering endless furniture possibilities.

 

editor’s note: designboom been following the development of the ‘XXXX_’ furniture series since 2011 when it was first conceived as a sofa.
see the first iterations and development process of the seating concept here.
