Get Carded

27Jul10

I personally hate hanging pictures – I love putting rooms together: choosing the  colour scheme, design the layout and choosing furniture, but trying to hang pictures is the death of me.

Today, I came across this unique interior created conceived and built by Toby Horrocks and Kristian Aus for a storefront at Melbourne’s State of Design Festival.  Flatform 322 is a fold-down, cardboard interior that reveals another interior design within the walls. Reminds me of a Murphy-bed like concept the way everything folds out and can easily be folded back in (or the paper-dolll cutout concept).

Interiors and products have a limited life span. Do you design for longevity and hope your designs don’t prematurely end up in the skip? Or go with the flow and accept that change is inevitable? Industrial designer Kristian Aus and architect Toby Horrocks have created an interior space that is both architecture and object, made from 100% post-consumer waste and 100% recyclable.
