nosigner: open-source furniture for mozilla factory, japan




mozilla’s new japan office by nosigner has been designed to reflect the web browser’s open source approach and software. the studio has developed an accessible furniture system which has been employed to outfit the workspace. the ‘mozilla factory’ is constructed from common components (‘open source furniture’) which include polycarbonate panels that allow individuals to easily edit their space accordingly; corner modules which assist in composing essential space elements such as a desk, shelf or light; and a floor system is which is made of plastic palette units covered with wood panels which have inspection doors set within each unit for hiding cables. the designs which furnish the ‘mozilla factory’ are free to download (the general products and all drawings are uploaded to the web), enabling anybody to use the software and construct their own inexpensive and functional office.
