philipp sussmann: abri boca living pod

‘abri-boca’ by philipp süssmann

 

 

‘abri-boca’ explores the theme of transformation– the transition between open spaces to more intimate and enclosed ones. philipp süssmann‘s design affords users to rest within the bed / living pod in an open state, and if more privacy is desired, one can easily pull the wooden shell closed via a pivoting mechanism, creating a protective canopy over the occupant. the adaptable furniture object is being exhibited in the ‘meet my project‘ exhibition during milan design week 2013.
