How can Industrial Design enhance the learning experience?
 

After an exhaustive research about the  ideal and existing learning and working spaces, I defined 6 central point which would lead my object.

  • Equal space for all

  • There not a definite way of doing things

  • Everything on sight

  • Make space for what is coming next

  • Work language

  • Adoptable

 
 

In search of developing an adaptable system that would satisfy the needs of the project I began developing a connector, which became the central piece of the system. The connector was produced in injected plastic in a 5 piece mold designed specifically for the project. 

 
 

The final result was a modular shelving system, which with the connection piece designed, and adding wood crossbars and aluminum surfaces can be arranged in infinite number of configurations depending on the need of the space and people working in it at the moment.
