Industrial Design. Urban Design

“Práxis” Line, 1990

System of office furniture.

The concept of a system, a set of models and their variants resulting from the combination of a coordinated range of interchangeable components, is resumed here. The recurrence of certain formal elements gives an aesthetic harmony to the line and allows the profitability of its production (smaller number of different components, larger quantities of identical parts, serial production independent of the fluctuations of market demand).

Intended for collective workspaces, the aim was for the presence of these pieces not to overshadow the people. Hence the general transparency of the models and the delicate expression given to the structural elements.
