I’m Su, product designer born 1985 in Taiwan.
I finished a master degree of product design at ECAL / Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne in 2012. And this is my final project at Ecal.
Nonsystem is a system furniture or not a system furniture.
It was inspired by an image that shows homeless person builds his bed with two storage boxes and chipboard. I was very fascinated by this minimalist style. So I created this boxes furniture collection to cope with all changes by remaining unchanged. This transforming furniture system consists of five various elements that can be adjusted to a user’s needs. Made from aluminum, maple wood, Plexiglas and recycled plastic, the collection can be playfully mixed and matched.
It is a research of function and material. While designing these boxes, I learned to treat different materials in different ways. The final result gives a look almost like a collage of materials and colors. And what makes them look coherent is only by their dimension. So each piece can be regard as an individual object but also part of the system.
