Shape and Function modular furniture design is a set of multi-purpose furniture which can be broken down into different furniture set such as a table, a chair, or a couch. This is an ingenious design for small spaces as you probably notice how the future seems moving to smaller modern living spaces. This furniture design offers many combination possibilities for its users depending on their needs.

One of the key things in the shape and function modular furniture concept is the word (term) multi-functionality and universality. The aim of this project is to come up with modular furniture system as a functional unit (a shelf), which can be separated and in such a way to provide a set, a table, a chair, a couch.
In the phase of shaping and searching for the ideal form of modular system furniture (where every side and every angle would be compatible with one another) I came back to the term of a grid in design which was ever present in the circles of Ulm school of design, Olt Aicher, Max Bill, Thomas Maldonado, and frequent in the graphic design of Karl Gerstner who belongs to the Swiss school of graphic design. Because of its practicability grid as such is very practical for further shaping development of this kind of design. As a final product of the research I came to the product, which in modular system looks like a shelf, and by separating it one can make a set (a table, a chair, elements of the table, a couch).
The result of the final research of Shape and Function modular furniture is the set composed of four different elements, which all together make one whole product (shelves), and when separated one can get a table, a chair, reclining chair for legs. A user of this product can create the formation of the elements as he/she wants, and it is exactly the fact that shows the advantage of modular design, because it offers more possibilities. The final product is a set of furniture for different purposes which can be transformed from one used object to another. The set is made of wooden plaques which are combined and additionally fixed with dyofix (special glue for wood). The elements are painted with acryl mat paint on a water basis.
