OPTION 1 OPTION 2 OPTION 3
Pros Cons Pros Cons Pros Cons
Convenient for current leg design It’s not really a wall Full one piece wall Accessing legs is a problem need a new leg design Legs only need access from one side, fits current leg design Won’t perform acoustically (not as bad as option 1)
Central centre of gravity, so stable Won’t perform well acoustically Suits concept best Off-centre centre of gravity, less stable Only have to position one set of legs - quicker It’s not really a wall (easier to fix as option 1)
Symmetry in the design Visually the design is not pleasing Looks nice in table format Increased complexity when adding charging points Looks nice in table format Off-centre centre of gravity, less stable
Good modular flexibility Because of butterfly concept it needs to be raised to high position to reach 2m Good modular flexibility Asymmetry - doesn’t perform well in modular flexibility
Split tables could counterbalance each other Symmetry in the design achievable Much smaller, fitting less people
Could have access to writable surface from either side Looks nice in table format
Gap in table surface could allow for charging points

Wheels Fixed Wall Rails Deploy Tables From Wall
Pros Cons Pros Cons Pros Cons Pros Cons
Maximum flexibility Wheels could be challanging to dtail More robust Wastes space along the wall More flexible Might not be possible in ecore More robust Harder to transform tables
Can be used in any office More unstable Easier to design Design of division of spaces required More robust that wheels Less flexible than wheels Stability for tables in upright position Relevance of the wall? Should we just design a table
Clean concept Opportunity to influence space permanently by creating new walls. Cupboards could be accessed from one side Table positioning limited by proximity to wall Bespoke solution required for each installation Opportunity to influence space permanently by creating new walls. Cupboards could be accessed from one side

Axle Wall

The CEMEC makerspace will house seminars, lectures and meetings, as well as design and build workshops. But how can those noisy activities possibly function at the same time, in the same space as the quiet activities? That’s where the Axle Wall comes in.

Let’s say you want to divide a noisy activity, like a workshop, from a quiet activity, like a lecture. Simply align the axle walls between the two activities and they will provide an acoustic barrier.

Now you need the whole space to teach? The axle-walls are equipped for that too. Remove the stools, wheel your walls into place and spin them into tables!

ECOR is lightweight, durable and easy to laser cut, making it the optimum material for innovative furniture solutions, such as the axle wall.

Quick and easy to transform. Storing stools for any occasion. Providing break-out work surfaces and an acoustic barrier.

Now, in classrooms everywhere, one space can function as many.

Curve the way

With an ever-growing population, spaces need to supply a greater amount of people and functions then ever before. This means that a space needs to be multi-functional and that furniture needs to be flexible. We don’t want that boring office furniture that we see everyday, we need furniture that inspires and enables our creativity. ECOR is perfect for this, I want to showcase its incredible potential to bend and create playful elements.

Therefore, I designed a modular furniture that is both flexible, multi-functional and showcases ECOR.

This is a seating furniture which shape originates from a circle and is bend into shape. It can be arranged in for example; a lounge area or a private conversation space.

It consists out of two elements, a seat, and a backrest that can be attached and detached according to the needs of that specific moment.

I want to curve the way to a new kind of office furniture that fits any companies’ interior and broadens the visibility of ECOR.

HotDesk

Ecore’s new design center, like other co-working environments, needs to be flexible and cater for groups of varying sizes. In addition there is a growing demand from office spaces around the world for bio based, circular and flexible furniture.

In response to these challenges I propose the solution of HotDesk. The concept is a piece of furniture that transforms from a white board or room divider, into an individual working environment , as well as a group working environment or meeting space.

These configurations mean ecore can accommodate any combination of desk space needed by the users of ecor’s building. Beyond ecore this desk is a simple and effective solution that could provide co-working environments and makers spaces around the world with flexible and bio-based furniture.
