Archipel is an irregularly shaped group of islands in the domestic landscape. A sculptural object in a space that will make people feel like climbing. Archipel does not dictate a fixed use, but offers a range of possibilities. There are different places to explore and try it; each different option will offer the user a new perspective on the surroundings. This multifunctional piece of furniture plays around with sets of contradictions such as vertical/horizontal, private/ social, work/leisure, robust/delicate. It offers enough space for several users and will allow each to determine his own position.
