I would like to submit you Futura from my design collection called Noèsis – in which movement becomes space. The Noèsis collection (Milonga, Futura, Galileo), the name used in its philosophical sense of intuition, expresses the concept of expanding an entire container object to make it wider in order to meet various functional needs and slot into any home setting

Futura is a flexible, functional and practical modular storage unit with a stacked system where the ground cube moves on wheels extending the hidden panel and taking with it the stacked cubes and support panels. In this way the shelves open and close without a preset length but with complete freedom of choice regarding the length desired. The holed lateral panel remains still with a “foot” on the floor allowing the shelf to expand when the cube is moved.The idea of piercing three sides and not identifying the back or front derives from the idea of the possibility of doubling the piece reflecting it horizontally. The result is a piece of furniture which can change in height and length because it can be stacked or put side by side to create endless combinations in the home or office. Lulghennet Teklè designed Futura with a shape that is volumetrically significant, but at the same time aerodynamic that contradicts the idea of solidity, given that the cube is in movement and extension, while the lateral panel, the light pierced part for closing, is stable on the ground. The object does not appear stationary and using it does not mean looking at it passively, but becoming active and interacting with it. The result is a piece of furniture which can change in height and length. The idea of piercing three sides and not identifying the back or front derives from the idea of the possibility of doubling the piece reflecting it horizontally.
Futura, available in various colours, extends its support panel from 50 to 80cm and can be used  in various guises, as a bookcase, a display unit, a bedside, a table side or a pouf, if used with a cushion. It is currently exhibited at the LAGO Florence – Italy.
