Amplifying the flexibility FabLab Gogoasa-Filimon Diana
Material- CardboardThe material that I chose to work with was cardboard. Thismaterial is practical, resistant and you can change the furniturewhen you want because is a recycled material.I chose to work with it on the entire FabLAb, not only on thefurniture, but also for the ceiling and the decorative objects.
ConceptThe idea behind the concept is that FabLAb is a place where everyonehas to be able to learn how to use different machines to build "almostanything". FabLAb is a place where people can meet, talk, work together,exchange information, share experiences and knowledge.FabLab is about movment and change. Is a dynamic space, where peoplecome, create, interact and then leave.So the place have to be able to offer the possibility to be changeddepending on needs.As a reference I used the Flexible Love designed by Chishen Shiu. Hecreated a chair made entirely of recycled cardboard, which can stretch forup to 16 people, and then shrink, almost disappearing when not needed.It expands like an accordion allowing a maximum of flexibility and agreat variety of form. The benches you can create by opening FlexibleLove can be curved or linear, also allowing adaptability to differentenvironments.
