Objects with potential
On the gravity of tradition, hybrid furniture items and updatable design: in conversation with Thomas Wagner Mike Meiré explains what he feels is most important when repositioning long-standing corporation Flötotto.
The modular system furniture ADD, now ready for the market and even more customisable, showcases its full potential at the Salone del Mobile 2014 in Milan. The latest version exploits the system’s full potential and offers even greater flexibility: perfect as both a compact, self-contained unit in the form of containers, sideboards and side tables or as a system that offers users limitless design freedom according to individual needs. The system’s ingenious, clip-on-and-off technique allows for easy changes in both the arrangement and colour scheme of drawers and panel pieces.
The innovative feature in the construction of ADD is a patented and cleverly designed plastic joint that comes with two advantages: First it seamlessly connects the timber profiles to form a structural frame, hiding the joint within the node itself. Second, it introduces a new and simple installation technique, in which the nodes feature fasteners that simply clip onto and off other elements such as front, side and back panels. Elements can easily be changed or added at any time. ADD is a system that can be modified and extended according to the user’s ideas and needs.
ADD: both individual furniture units and a system. The modular system comes in attractive colours and includes a number of self-contained units that can be used universally and can be extended to create complete solutions. ADD works like a construction kit providing unlimited options, adapting instantly to changing lifestyles: if necessary, the system can be modified easily and effortlessly. With the lengths, depths and widths of individual modules combining perfectly, ADD provides all the benefits of a sophisticated system. Users can choose from a wealth of individual design options to create their very own piece of furniture.
