thinkk studio: hide and seek space dividers

thai designer ploypan theerachai of THINKK studio has conceived ‘hide and seek’, three space dividers based on the notion of play. the project explores the idea of infusing play as a design method to inform furniture and product concepts, by integrating creativity in the problem solving process.  the bright, colorful collection of panels made from marble, wood and metal frames encased in an upholstered skin, have the ability to  create personal space in public by easily portioning one’s own area. ‘hide and seek’ consists of the three elements: ‘tree’, which separates the spatial volume into three sections; ‘bush’, which divides the spaces; and ‘nest’, which allows you to have privacy beneath the structure while making a phone call for a couple of minutes.

theerachai says of the project:

‘lately, designs have efficiently answered their functions. another new object then needs to attract users among all other perfectly functional objects. the project is an object that not only blurs the line between function and emotional appeal, but also maintains physical performance while addressing emotional needs.’
