FUNiture you’ll never want to part with!

I started this project because I’m interested in the connection between people and objects. I wondered why people feel attached to childhood toys but not to purchased furniture. I wanted to explore how to strengthen the bond between humans and their belongings.

This project also relates to sustainability. In the Netherlands alone, 247 million kilograms of interior waste are generated each year. This is a significant problem. My aim was to design furniture that people wouldn’t discard when trends pass. Through research and testing, I discovered that when people build furniture themselves, they form a stronger connection with it. This is because building something creates a memory, and people feel proud of their creations. With a variety of parts, there are countless possibilities for building unique pieces. The creations can be as unusual as people want them to be.

Have fun building FUNiture you’ll never want to part with!
